This Handsome bird is often the dread of farmers in ravaging their crops and so out come the guns, mostly to frighten them but one Dead bird is usually hung somewhere the others can see it and it seems to keep them away.
The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Cacatua galerita, is a relatively large white cockatoo found in wooded habitats in Australia and New Guinea. In Australia, they can be bought from Pet shops or online – after they are trained, they are quite intelligent and learn to talk and do tricks, some just sit in freedom on a stand they are so brain dead they won’t fly away.
Personally I would never let anyone catch them, they should be free.
