Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized white cockatoo with a small crest and an extremely long, pointed upper mandible. Body entirely white with pink patches around eye and chin. Typically occurs in grassy habitat, and is often seen feeding in parks or sporting grounds. It uses its long upper mandible to dig for roots and seeds. Its call is more clipped and staccato than Little Corella. Native to southeastern Australia but numerous feral populations exist elsewhere, typically in suburban areas.
