There are more than 20 species of cockatoo, having a mainly Australasian distribution, ranging from the Philippines and the eastern Indonesian islands of Wallacea to New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Australia. These birds are very sociable and friendly, but they require a lot of attention. If they are bored, ignored or stressed, cockatoos may become depressed, which results in self-destructive behavior. The bird harms itself by plucking out its own feathers. If not provided with the appropriate environment, attention, and enrichment opportunities, cockatoos might also become aggressive. It is vital for these birds to get out of the cake every day, and to have enough space to fly around freely. Cockatoo is a very loud bird. Its voice can be heard a mile away.
Cockatoo is prone to become overweight. If you don’t monitor and maintain the bird’s diet and don’t let it out of the cage, it can gain weight very fast.
The rarest cockatoo species is the Palm Cockatoo. It is a large smoky-grey or black parrot with red cheeks native to New Guinea, Aru Islands and Cape York Peninsula.
One of the most beautiful cockatoos is The Salmon-crested cockatoo, also known as the Moluccan cockatoo. It is among the largest of the white cockatoos. This bird has white-pink feathers with a peachy glow, and a large retractable crest that reveals concealed bright red-orange plumes to scare predators away. It also has one of the loudest calls in the parrot world, and also the ability to mimic almost any sound it hears.
