Salmon-crested Cockatoo

Cacatua moluccensis
Cockatoos are noisy, flocking parrots that inhabit Australia and island countries to its north and west. Loud squawking enables them to communicate in thick forests. The salmon-crested cockatoo is a popular bird in captivity, which is one reason its populations are declining as birds are captured from the wild for the pet trade.
