The Banksian or Banks black cockatoo - Calyptorhynchus banksii is known as the forest red-tailed cockatoo and can be found in the South West, Australia from Perth to Albany.

Black cockatoos have been recorded living for over fifty years in captitvity and a bird named Karak was the official mascot of the 2006 Commonwealth Games. These birds are vulnerable due to habitat loss. They nest in the hollowed out trunks in large eucalyptus trees which are being removed in many urban areas.

Although these birds can be raucous and quite destructive at times they are an incredibly impressive birds, not only because of their size but when in flight the red in their tails light up .
