Goffin Cockatoo

Goffin’s are native to the forests of Yamdena, Larat, and Selaru, all islands in the Tanimbar Islands archipelago in Indonesia.
Wild cockatoos forage all day for seeds and nuts, as well as coconuts and grain crops.

Also called the Tanimbar corella, the Goffin’s cockatoo is the smallest of the white cockatoos, and are about 12 inches long from head to tail. It is most likely to be mistaken for a bare-eyed cockatoo (or little corella) because of their similar appearance. Goffin’s are mainly white with salmon-colored feathers around the eyes and beak, and the deeper feathers in the crest and around the neck are also salmon colored. The undersides of the Goffin’s wing and tail feathers have a yellowish tinge.
