Every April the Great Cocky Count records as many sightings of white-tailed and red-tailed black cockatoos as possible across Western Australia on a single night. It’s an easy and fun survey, counting all cockatoos flying into their night-time roosting trees at a specific place just before sunset.
In the lead up to this fun event, the Shire of Kalamunda in partnership with BirdLife Australia is running a Great Cocky Count workshop on Thursday 19 March at Jorgensen Park Pavilion. The workshop will commence at 6:45pm and conclude at 8:30pm, a light supper will be provided.
Shire President Sue Bilich said, “All members of the community are invited to register for this informative workshop where you can learn more about the habits of these birds and how to participate in the Great Cocky Count in local reserves.”
“Learn more about Cockatoo conservation, the aims of the Great Cocky Count and how to identify cockatoos in the wild.”
To register please RSVP by 11 March as places are limited. Contact the Shire of Kalamunda Environmental Services Team on 9257 9999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jorgensen Pavilion is located at 20 Crescent Road, Kalamunda.
