Where Is It Located?
The Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo is found from Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, south and central eastern Queensland and south eastern Australia.
Habitat
The Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo lives in many different varieties of habitats. It likes pine-plantations and Eucalypt woodland the most. Large and small flocks have been spotted in areas like these either perched or flying.
Appearance
The Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo is a big bird standing at 55-56cm tall and weighs around 700g. The cockatoo has layers of black feathers to coat it with yellow patches located on the cheek area and the underneath tail panels. The yellow colour is difficult to see from a distance.

Special Details
Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoos are never seen alone. They are either in pairs or in trios and can be seen flocking during breeding season.
Feral Cats, Foxes and Eagles may hunt them and their young. The Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo is a protected endangered species which makes the import, export and trade of listed wild caught animals illegal.
Captively held estimates of lifespan range from as low as 25 years and up to an amazing 100 years of age. Very little is known about their lifespan in the wild.

Distribution
Breeding
The breeding season varies among individual birds. Both the female and male build a nest together in a hollow tree lined with wood chips. The female incubates the eggs while the male goes out and catches food to feed her and their young. The average clutch has two eggs in it but normally only one chick survives. The chicks spend around 168 days in the nest.
