These cockatoos are found mostly within the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, where the limits of its range include Cape Arid to the east, Lake Cronin, Hatters Hill and Lake Moore inland, and Kalbarri to the north. However breeding takes place in areas of higher rainfall. They are mostly commonly found in wandoo or salmon gum woodlands. For breeding they need tall well spaced trees, where they nest in hollows generally about 5.7 metres (19ft) above the ground. It has been listed as endangered because much of this sort of habitat has been cleared. Recently the total population was estimated to consist of 40,000 individuals, but it has declined by 50% on the Perth-Peel Coastal Plain in just 6 years. They primarily feed on the seeds of Banksias, Hakeas and Grevilleas. It is mostly greyish black in colour with white tail feathers and is 53-58cm (21-23 in) in length.
