From Galahs and Sulphur-crested cockies to the endangered Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, there is a lot to learn about Australia’s cheekiest and much-beloved species of bird.
Did you know that the word cockatoo comes from the Malay word kakatua? Or that most cockatoos are left-footed? Did you know their closest relatives are parrots; and that they’re amongst the world’s longest-living birds?
Richly illustrated with over 80 interpretations of the species, Cockatoo is the perfect gift for animal lovers, illustration buffs, and tourists alike.
‘BirdLife Australia is proud to be associated with the publication of this beautifully illustrated book on cockies.’ – Paul Sullivan, Chief Executive, BirdLife Australia
