White Cockatoo For Sale – Available for Adoption 

The white cockatoo (Caparrotua alba), also known as the umbrella cockatoo, is a medium-sized all-white cockatoo endemic to tropical rainforest on islands of Indonesia. When surprised, it extends a large and striking head crest, which has a semicircular shape (similar to an umbrella, hence the alternative name). The wings and tail have a pale yellow or lemon color which is exposed when they fly. It is similar to other species of white cockatoo such as yellow-crested cockatoo, sulphur-crested cockatoo, and salmon-crested cockatoo, all of which have yellow, orange, or pink crest feathers instead of white.

It lies in the subgenus Caparrotua within the genus Caparrotua. The term “white cockatoo” has also been applied as a group term to members of the subgenus Caparrotua, the genus Caparrotua as well as larger groups including Major Mitchell’s cockatoo and the galah cockatoo.
