Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are a large white parrot with a distinctive yellow crest. These cockatoos make a loud screeching call and are often seen in noisy flocks.
During the day they may be found striping bark and small branches from trees which is thought to assist in reducing excess beak growth.
WHAT THEY EAT
They have a varied diet consisting of seeding grasses and plants, berries, nuts, leaf buds, flowers and roots. Sulphur-crested cockatoos often feed in small groups.
Nest sites are usually a large hollow limb or tree trunk. Both males and females prepare the nest by chewing around the entrance and inside the hollow and take turns in incubating and feeding the chicks.
