Description:

A great photo of a great Australian bird - the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo.

This photo was taken by on a road trip along the Great Ocean Road, in one of the parks we stopped at for lunch. Unfortunately this particular photo does not fully show its impress yellow/orange crest.

Cockatoos are often kept as pets birds, and once tamed they can be let out of their cage for extended periods of time. They can live for 70+ years in captivity, but in the wild they rarely live beyond 40 years of age. Typically Cockatoos are found in large flocks, often time exceeding 500 animals. They possess a unique ‘screech’ which makes them easily recognisable just by sound.

The Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo, a unique bird of Australia.
