Scientific Name: Lophochroa leadbeateri
This is by far one of our favourite of the Cockatoo species.
The colouration in these birds is second to none, with that sunset-like crest that truly sets them apart from their brethren. In the wild this species is becoming uncommon, with the main threats being land development, poaching, and predation from feral animals.
Our Major Mitchell’s are kept in large conventional aviaries and fed a very high quality pelleted diet, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, insect larvae, and native flora.
We keep one pair of Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo at our Aviaries.
