Other Names: 'White Cockatoo'
Cacatua galerita

  • Probably the most familiar of all cockatoos.

  • It is a large all white parrot with a yellow crest.

  • They occur in the south east, along the east coast, and across northern tropical Australia.

  • Like many parrots, they are very sociable birds, often seen travelling in huge flocks above the rainforest canopy, and coming to roost at night in large numbers in particular trees.

  • While these birds can often sit quietly in the treetops, they are often noticed because they are such a loud bird with an awesome screech made as an alarm call.

  • Here it may be observed feeding on the small hard fruits of the Alphitonia.
