Greater Sulphur Crested Cockatoo

(Cacatua Galerita Galerita)


The Galerita Galerita is seen the least in captivity. It is the largest of the Sulphur-Crested cockatoos, standing as tall as the 20" Moluccan when reaching full size at 3 years of age. It is a rather slender bird, mainly white with a large, lemon yellow crest. The bare eye ring is white in color. There is a slight yellow tinge to the feathers over the ear and there is bright yellow on the underside of the wings and tail. Beak and feet are grayish-black.


Many respect the Galerita Galerita as the most gentle of all cockatoos. They can learn to mimic many words, but are not regarded as great talkers.


We frequently have hand-raised babies.
