Volunteers needed for Spring Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo Count

Registrations are now open for our October Spring FRTBC Count scheduled to take place on the evening of Sunday 10th October. This count was started several years ago in an effort to more closely monitor the movements of Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos (FRTBCs) during the spring, given their recent influx onto the Swan Coastal Plain (SCP) during the Great Cocky Counts in autumn. We are interested to see if their movements will continue to follow a similar seasonal pattern to those of Carnaby’s. This is the first year we have opened up registrations to the wider public as we look to expand the number of sites included.

Registrations close on Friday 24th September.

Please note only FRTBC roost sites in the Greater Perth-Peel Region (Harvey to Lancelin and inland to York) will be prioritised and included in this count. If you know of any FRTBC roost sites in this area that are occupied in spring please let us know at greatcockycount@birdlife.org.au or in the Spring FRTBC Count registration form.

2021 Spring FRTBC Count Registration Form

The 2021 Spring FRTBC Count is on Sunday October 10th at sunset (approximately 5.45 -7.00pm). Please be aware registrations close 2 weeks prior to the Count (Friday 24th September).

Started in 2018 the Spring count was introduced to monitor the activity and movements of Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos (FRTBC) after large increases in numbers of the species were recorded on the Swan Coastal Plain in recent years.

Please note that this count will only be taking place in the Greater Perth-Peel Region (Waroona in the South, to Lancelin in the North and York in the East).

The 2021 Spring FRTBC Count is funded by The Alcoa Foundation.
