Sulphur-crested Cockatoo

These birds form flocks of several hundred individuals. They often feed on the ground with some birds staying up in the trees to act as sentries watching for danger.

The mobile crest of the sulfur crested cockatoo is used to communicate the bird's mood or to attract a mate.
