The sulphur-crested cockatoo is from Australia and some islands of the geographical region of Oceania. It is primarily found in the eastern and southern states of Australia, i…ncluding Tasmania, and the Northern Territory. It is also found in Papua New Guinea and the Aru Islands, and it has been introduced to New Zealand and parts of Indonesia.
Cockatoos feed mostly on seeds and grains. They have strong, curved beaks which are ideal for cracking hard seeds and nuts. They also enjoy a bit of sweet nectar from blossoms…, and occasionally fruit. Cockatoos in Australia favour the seeds, nuts and fruit (and berries and roots as well) of a variety of native plant species such as eucalyptus, casuarinas, acacias and banksias.
No definitely not. As a matter of fact farmers were getting subsidy's for shooting them.
Yes. Cockatoos are parrots because they have the characteristic strong, curved beak of a parrot, used for cracking gumnuts and other hard seeds.

Humans form sound by moving wind over vocal cords in the larynx. Birds, however, have a little box called the syrinx further down in their bodies (in addition to a cordless la…rynx). They make sounds by fluctuating this syrinx. Cockatoos and other birds known for their mimicking capabilities have stronger muscles controlling the voice box. There really is no sound formed using the beak or tongue- everything is from the tiny box in the bird's body. As far as intelligence goes, cockatoos do nothing more than imitate sounds they hear. While some more intelligent types of parrots (Gray parrot especially) are known for sometimes putting meaning to words, cockatoos generally only mimic words like you might mimic a tune you hear.
No. Cockatoos are not songbirds. At best, they can only whistle tunefully, imitating other sounds they have heard, but they do not have melodic, songlike calls of their own.…
Cockatoos drink water from one of those bottle things, or maybe they could even have juice... if you tried serving it for them!
yes it is legal, although they are expensive and need alot of attention.
Cockatoos are not omnivores. They are classed as herbivores becausetheir diet is made up of fruits, seeds and nuts.
