Feeding a Red Tailed Black Cockatoo for sale

 

All Red Tailed Black Cockatoo eat seeds. Their particular food preferences are specific for the different subspecies:

The northern sub-species of Red tailed Black Cockatoo eats the widest variety of seeds, including those from trees, shrubs, grasses and mangroves. It has adapted to eating introduced species, with the seeds of Chinee Apple (Ziziphus mauritiana) being a particular favorite. It is also especially fond of sea-almond and white cedar. The birds are highly nomadic, moving about seasonally as different species of trees or shrubs produce their seeds.

The Forest Red tail lives in the crown of eucalypt forests, feeding mainly on the large woody seeds of the marri (Eucalyptus calophylla).

The Inland Red tail feeds on proteas, casuarinas and other small trees in the Western Australian wheat belt and arid inland. It feeds on the ground, and will eat introduced species such as storksbill (Erodium), a flowering plant in the geranium family, and double-gee (Emex australis) a noxious weed originally introduced as a vegetable.

The Southeastern Red-tail eats the seeds of the brown stringybark (Eucalyptus baxteri) and of the buloke (Allocasuarina leuhmannii ).

Cockatoos have very strong beaks which they use to break open even very hard, woody seed capsules of gum trees. Their very mobile, muscular tongue then extracts the kernel from within the seed pod. 

 

Breeding Red Tailed Black Cockatoos

 

In order to breed, the red-tailed blacks require very large tree or trunk hollows in which to make their nests. They usually lay 1-2 eggs and it is the female that sits and incubates the egg, while the male feeds and brings back food for the nesting female.
