Description

White-winged chough are almost totally black in colour, with their white-wing patch only visible during flight. They are found throughout the open forests and woodlands of eastern and south-eastern Australia. They tend to prefer wetter areas with lots of leaf litter, for feeding and the mud for nest building. They are extremely sociable birds, living in family flocks consisting of one breeding pair plus offspring from previous seasons. Young birds take four years to reach breeding maturity and will stay with their parents for this time.

Price is per week of loan.
