Sulphur Crested Cockatoo yawning or singing - funny animal picture funny bird - Nature Stock Image by Professional Wildlife Photographer Christina Craft The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is a large white parrot, measuring 45cm - 50cm. It has a dark grey-black bill, a distinctive sulphur-yellow crest and a yellow wash on the underside of the wings. Sexes are similar, although the female can be separated at close range by its red-brown eye (darker brown in the male). This is a noisy and conspicuous cockatoo, both at rest and in flight. The most common call is a distinctive loud screech, ending with a slight upward inflection. Young Sulphur-crested Cockatoos resemble the adults. The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is similar in appearance to the three species of corella found in Australia. Corellas are smaller, however, and lack the prominent yellow crest. Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, along with many other parrots, are susceptible to a widespread viral disease known as Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD), which causes the birds to lose their feathers and grow grotesquely shaped beaks. Distribution and Habitat Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are common and familiar in Australia. Their range extends throughout the northern and eastern mainland, and Tasmania. Their popularity as a cage bird has also increased this range, as these birds either escape or are released deliberately in areas where they do not already occur. A small population has become established around Perth, Western Australia. Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are found in a variety of timbered habitats and are common around human settlements. The birds stay in the same area all year round. The species also occurs in New Guinea and the Aru Islands, and has been introduced into New Zealand and Indonesia. - Buy Nature Stock Photography - Nature, Wildlife & Travel Photographer
