Palm Cockatoo

The Palm cockatoo also known as the Goliath cockatoo is the largest species of Cockatoo in the world. It is found on the western tip of Australia as well as New Guinea and Indonesia. They are black with bright red cheeks; their cheeks change colour when the bird is excited or alarmed.

Pairs have a low breeding rate, laying one egg every two years. This alongside habitat loss has led to a decreasing population with a recent study showing that there could be less than 1,500 left in the wild.
