Cockatoos are beautiful birds that are known for their soft feathers, stunning colors, and affectionate nature, not to mention their affinity for showing off.
They are very smart birds, and will routinely go out of their way to entertain, bobbing their head, dancing, spreading their wings, and making loud noises in order to get attention.
They are naturally inquisitive birds that love to explore. They are always performing while they are awake, and will make a big show of playing with their toys and doing all they can to get your attention.
Cockatoos are a large member of the parrot family that are distinguishable by the large crest on their head. The crest will rise up when the cockatoo is excited or scared. Cockatoos eat seeds and nuts, using their strong beaks to crack them open.
