The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is Australia's most famous cockatoo, easily recognised by their signature yellow crest and wings.


These snow-white cockatoos are very social, especially during autumn and winter when mating season has ended. They can even be seen in flocks of up to a hundred birds, and small clusters may feed in your backyard while socialising, chatting and preening.


Sulphur-crested Cockatoos work together to protect the flock. While feeding, two cockatoos will keep a lookout for signs of danger from the post of a nearby tree. If danger appears, these cockatoos will screech loudly as a warning. The word 'cockatoo' has even become a colloquial term for someone who keeps guard.
