Specie Profile: Cockatoo

"Know that cockatoos need a great deal of your time and attention."

Cockatoos live in the far east on continents such as Australia and sport feather colors ranging from white to gray to black. This type of bird prefers three distinct habitat types: tropical rainforests, dry savannas and plains made up of grass. Specie types include the Mullucan (Cacatus moluccensis) and the Greater Sulpher-crested cockatoo (Cacatua galerita galerit.) Cockatoos make a good fit for the bird owner that knows his or her stuff when it comes to this type of parrot and is ready to give their pet a good amount of attention.
