These are beautiful birds, seen only in an area of Australia. We were fortunate to manage to see these two on our recent travelling up through central Australia. Underneath their wings, the colour is the same as that hot pink-red-orange or yellow on their crest. A spectacle to see them flying.

When I lived in Adelaide in the 70s I saw lots of Sulfur-crested Cockatoo's but never anything like these. Wonder bird and image.

Thanks heaps Martin. We have lots of Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, and Galahs around our ares, but we were driving through Central Australia on our way home, and stopped for a break - I wandered into the part, and disturbed these beautiful Major Mitchell Cockatoo. I was blown away. I had heard of them, but never seen them. They were beautiful birds. We just got lucky.
