It is a species of cockatoo with a white body and a yellow crest. They typically live in forests and peel away tree bark to find grubs. This one however was eating the house. The ones in this area have learnt to take advantage of humans by stealing the little packets of sugar you put in your tea/coffee and eating it. It's not doing good for their health as they have moved away from their normal diet. They are very common in most forests in Australia especially Victoria and Western Australia.
Australian forests especially in Victoria and Western Australia. I found it in Lorne, Victoria. The nearby habitat was urban and a forest with mainly gumtrees.
