Bin-opening by Sulphur-crested Cockatoos
This survey should take between 2-5 minutes.
This study is being conducted as part of the Clever Cockie Project by Dr Barbara Klump and Dr Lucy Aplin of the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior, Germany with Dr John Martin, Taronga Conservation Society, Australia, and Dr Richard Major, Australian Museum of the Cockatoo Wingtag Project.
Sulphur-crested Cockatoos in the Sydney region have been observed to open bins to scavenge food. We are interested to learn where bin-opening is or has occurred. As such, we are also interested in where it does NOT occur - so please report this also. This study aims to try and understand where bin-opening started, how it spreads and whether securing bins can help manage the behaviour.
This survey consists of two parts. The first part asks about bin protection and the second part about direct observations of bin-opening by cockatoos.
We appreciate your willingness to help us by filling in this short survey, it should only take a few minutes. Thank you!
