Major Mitchell's Cockatoo

Lophochroa leadbeateri


I saw this cockatoo in the Pretoria Zoo. It is such a beautiful bird with it's pink feathers.


They are found in Australia in the arid and semi-arid areas of interior to west coast of Western Australia Their numbers has declined over the interior of Australia due to man-made changes.
