Eleanora Cockatoos

The Eleanora Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita Eleonora) is a sub-species of the Greater sulfur-crested cockatoo. This cockatoo is native to the Aru Islands in the province of Maluku in eastern Indonesia.

They are both friendly and intelligent and are very social, affectionate creatures. Natural chewers, cockatoos must be provided with branches or strips of wood. Some birds can be quite noisy, especially during the early morning and evening hours. Eleanora cockatoos may be less prone to developing behavior problems such as feather plucking and screaming than other popular cockatoo species. These birds love to cuddle and play, and can readily be taught to perform tricks.
