Artificial nest boxes for Black Cockatoos

 

The COCKATUBE ® nest box has been designed specifically for the 3 species of Black Cockatoo found in Western Australia, but is suitable for Black Cockatoo species Australia wide.

Landcare SJ can provide a full installation service or installation advice.

You can install the  COCKATUBE ® yourself and Installation Guidelines are available at purchase.

Generally a cherry picker or tree climber (preferably an arborist) will be required. The corrugated cockatubes are much lighter than the solid ones and so are easier to install.

Black Cockatoos are extremely beautiful and unique birds, four species of which are native to WA: Baudins, Carnabys, and two species of Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos.
 
Each have their own individual feeding and breeding habits, however, they all have one thing in common; they are becoming increasingly uncommon along the Swan Coastal Plain. In fact, only 10% of their original habitat remains, due to large areas of native vegetation being cleared for development.
 
Black Cocatoos not only have to deal with their habitat being degraded, they also have to compete with feral bees, Corellas, possums and other creatures for nesting positions.
