Range Description

Cacatua ophthalmica is endemic to New Britain, Papua New Guinea, where it is widespread in suitable habitat. It is usually encountered in pairs, but birds may congregate in flocks of up to 40 individuals. Although the species may still appear to be relatively numerous, it is long-lived and declines in reproductive output due to deforestation may be masked.
