WHAT THEY EAT
Major Mitchell’s cockatoos feed mostly on the ground and have a varied diet including nuts, fruits, bulbs, roots and the seeds of a number of plant species as well as insects.
Nests are found in the hollow of trees lined with woodchips and bark. The adults pair for life and may return to the same nest year after year. They have an average of 2-3 eggs in a clutch and both parents contribute to the incubation and rearing of the chicks.
