The Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo is a large cockatoo found in south-eastern Australia, from Eyre Peninsula, South Australia to south and central eastern Queensland. Its feathers are mostly brownish black and it has yellow cheek patches, a yellow tail band but unlike the sulfur-crested cockatoo, it has a short crest on the top of its head. The Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo favours eucalypt woodlands and pine plantations but they live in a variety of habitats ♥ They can be found in small or large flocks and are quite noisy, especially when enmass. They eat seeds and some insects and sadly these beautiful creatures don’t visit my garden… maybe they don’t like the bird seeds I buy.
