Cockatoos

Cockatoos for kidsCockatoos are showy birds with colourful crests and curved beaks, which are found mostly in Australasia. The cockatoo shown in our photo is a sulphur-crested cockatoo, which is very common in Australia and can often be found in such large numbers that it is regarded as a pest as they can feed on fruit and cereal crops.

The cockatoo has a distinctive, raucous call!

We've got cockatoo notebooking pages and booklets as well as a fun cockatoo colouring page here at Activity Village, and more printables coming soon.
