The distribution of the five species of black cockatoo is varied due to differences in their habitat preferences. There are five sub-species of red-tailed black cockatoo, which can be found in south-west Western Australia, central Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland as well as the south-east of Victoria and south-west South Australia. Red-tailed black cockatoos live in a variety of habitat types from shrubland, woodlands and tropical rainforest. The two species of white-tailed black-cockatoos, Carnaby’s and Baudin’s, are both found in south-west Australia. They rely on heavily forested areas, woodlands and heathland. Carnaby’s black-cockatoo has adapted to also rely on pine plantations as a food source. The yellow-tailed black cockatoo is found in south-eastern Australia, from the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia to southern and central parts of eastern Queensland. They rely on a variety of habitat types from eucalypt woodlands to pine plantations. The glossy black cockatoo has three sub-species that can be found in south-east Australia, central -astern Queensland and South Australia’s Kangaroo Island.
