Be part of cocky count

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 will hold a Great Cocky Count workshop on Thursday, March 10, at the Gooseberry Hill multi-use facility.

The workshop will start at 6.30pm and conclude at 8.30pm, with a supper provided.

Shire President Andrew Waddell said all members of the community were invited to register for the workshop to learn more about the habits of these birds and how to take part 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. It’s free and a lot of fun,” he said.

The Gooseberry Hill multi-use facility is at 42 Ledger Road.
