The bare-eyed cockatoo is a slightly smaller member of the cockatoo family of parrots, and it is one that is somewhat easier to keep as a pet than its larger cousins. The ring of blue around the eyes gives these birds a slightly sleepy look, but these birds are actually quite social and active, much preferring to be out of the cage and interacting with their owners.

 

The bare-eyed cockatoo may not be the most colorful parrot in the world, but it more than makes up for it in personality. Sweet, playful, and intelligent, bare-eyed cockatoos are becoming more and more popular as pets. While cockatoos, in general,are among the more difficult birds to keep, due to a reputation as a velcro bird (sticking to their owners), if you have the time and determination to provide your bird with plenty of attention, you will have a wonderful companion.

Goffins cockatoos are not shy birds. Like a typical cockatoo, most enjoy being held and petted, and are friendly and sociable. Goffins can also be a bit mischievous;and are quick learners. Dont be surprised to find that your Goffins cockatoo quickly learns to open the cage after seeing you unlatch the lock.

Also called the Tanimbar corella, the Goffins cockatoo is the smallest of the white cockatoos, and are about 12 inches long from head to tail. It is most likely to be mistaken for a bare-eyed cockatoo (or little corella) because of their similar appearance.

 

Goffins are mainly white with salmon-colored feathers around the eyes and beak, and the deeper feathers in the crest and around the neck are also salmon colored. The undersides of the Goffins wing and tail feathers have a yellowish tinge.

The moluccan cockatoo is a favorite among bird fanciers due to its striking appearance and wonderful temperament. Moluccans are also called salmon-crested cockatoos because of the salmon-pink feathers that comprise most of their head crest, which they will display when they are excited, angry, afraid, or thrilled with something.

 

The moluccan is a large bird, one of the largest white cockatoo species,but can range in size, reportedly because the region in which they are found in the wild is large enough to support sub species. The moluccan cockatoo is a rosy-pink color, with the depth of the pinkness varying per individual. The feet and beak are black, but are generally covered with powder down, which make them look gray dont worry, this is absolutely healthy.

The rose-breasted cockatoo, usually known in its native Australia as the galah, may be close to the perfect parrot species when it comes to suitability as a pet at least for an owner who likes to play a lot with a pet bird. Extremely intelligent and enormously fond of humans, the bird can learn a wide vocabulary when trained diligently and is able to learn other complex tricks as well.

 

As a native to the harsh conditions of central Australia, the rose-breasted cockatoo is also unusually hardy and free of many of the diseases and disorders common to other parrots.

The sulphur-crested cockatoo is one of the largest of the several species of beautiful white cockatoos. Although spectacular in appearance, this large parrot is very large, very intelligent, very long-lived, very noisy and very challenging to keep as a pet.

 

This is a bird for experienced owners who are up to the task. For a motivated owner, though, the sulphur-crested will be a once-in-a-lifetime pet.

The umbrella cockatoo certainly makes a charming, affectionate pet, but its not for everyone. An umbrella cockatoo demands attention and needs an owner who can set boundaries.

 

The umbrella cockatoo, also known as the white cockatoo or the great white-crested cockatoo, is well-known in bird circles as being one of the most affectionate and affable companion birds widely available on the market today. An Indonesian native, the umbrella is slightly smaller than the Moluccan cockatoo, but is not smaller in personality or charm. This out-going cockatoo is infamous for its outlandish antics and for being clingy with its owners.

 

The umbrella can be distinguished from other white cockatoos by its wholly white crest that raises like an umbrella when the bird is excited, agitated, or ready to play (or bite!). Both the beak and legs are a dark gray, and the feathers on the undersides of the wings and tail are light yellow.
