Greater Sulfur Crested Cockatoo

Greater Sulfur Crested Cockatoo, inserito originariamente da DR. MARIΟ™.

EXPLORED Highest Position #36 | July 10, 2009 Friday

TGIFWHITE COCKATOO | Cacatua Galerita The Large Darkside

The Greater Sulfur Crested Cockatoo is probably the best known of all Cockatoos. It is also the largest. It is white colored with the tail feathers and underside of the wings being yellow. The head is crowned by a bright sulfur-yellow crest, which curves upwards. This crest open ups like a fan when the bird is alarmed. The sexes can be told apart by the colors of the eyes. A male has a very dark, blackish eye, while the females are more brown. They reach a length up to 20 inches. [?]

LOCATION: Edna's Greenhouse & Flowershop, Pagadian City, Philippines

*First I was so delighted to go inside the huge cage to shoot this lovely couple, but upon entering and starting to shoot this magnificent creatures, they seem to be very much annoyed with my presence and shooting gestures and they deliberately started making loud noise. This are huge birds and they started to freak me out, so I decided to go outside instead and shoot them even with the cage infront of me. Thank God to the Aperture Power [lol].

Huge and flooding gratitude again to Joy for giving me a chance to shoot all of his colorful and expensive imported birds. Dang I love Mother Nature.

If you do not correct them
when they upset you

Then will never learn
to treat you with respect
