Citron Crested Cockatoo
The Citron Crested Cockatoo inhabits open woodlands, edges of forests and cultivated fields. They are often seen in villages perched in coconut palms and are generally seen in pairs and small flocks. They are noisy, conspicuous birds, their white plumage standing out when they are foraging among the fresh green of young cornfields. Their plumage is not so noticeable during the dry season. They regularly feed in the treetops where large numbers will congregate.
