Abstract

Through the courtesy of Mr. M. W. Harrison, I have
been permitted to examine the egg of the Black Cockatoo
(Calyptorhynchus xanthonotus), and the following interesting
data has been kindly supplied to me by that gentleman. The
bird was seen by Mr. Leslie Burbury on several occasions to
fly from a hole in a gum tree, also by a shepherd in Mr.
Burbury's employ. Both saw the bird leave the nest on the
occasion of taking the eggs.
