Species: Cacatua alba
The IUCN lists the umbrella cockatoo as ENDANGERED. Its numbers have declined due to capture and habitat loss.
When surprised, it extends a large and striking head crest, which has an “umbrella” shape.
The Cockatoo’s feet are zygodactyl. Two toes face forward and two face back.
They have very strong beaks which can be easily used to crack walnuts.
Umbrella cockatoos can learn a large number of words and are able to construct simple sentences with the words they learn.
