Small grey cockatoo with paler edges to feathers and wispy crest. Male - head and crest red. Female - head and crest grey, bars on breast and abdomen reddish. Has a distinctive rasping screech.

Uncommon but ranges in south-eastern Australia. I spotted this one in the Rainbow Jungle in Kalbarri.

They are a great bird to see in the wild, very striking and they make a squeaky door noise which is very distinctive.
