What type of cockatoo is this?

It looks like a large sulphur crested cockatoo with blue rings round the eyes. A lot bigger than my African grey.

Re: What type of cockatoo is this?

You mean a blue eyed cockatoo?

Crest says sulphur crested cockatoo [family]. Eyes say blue eyed. Could be a hybrid?


If not a hybrid, then a sulphur crested cockatoo with a very blue ring around the eye... any information about the bird? where it came from? Have you tried tracking the leg band?

Re: What type of cockatoo is this?

It is a Sulphur Creasted Cockatoo. But i can't be sure what sub-species it is either C.g.fitzroyi or a Triton. Both are similar size, the triton has a much broarder & rounded crest but both have the blue eye ring.

Re: What type of cockatoo is this?
