    Trevor,
    Like I stated earlier these are awesome birds no matter if some cause grief to the farmer or not. They were here first. I didnt see any photos of the Goffin and would like to if you have any available...

    You are right roman, the cockatoos were here first , but when they get in there thousands some farmers get the shotguns out and the reason i didn't put other cockatoos on this page is i thought i would just post the australian birds at this stage, the goffins is native to the islands off Indonesia,they are often confused with our short billed corella or little corella as it is known, i looked at your misty lou and jumped the gun , as they look very similar, here is a goffins for you, Trevor .

    The Australian species of cockatoos are my favorite. Gang Gangs at my #1 tied in with the Black Palm. A close #2 are the other Black cockatoos: Red Tailed, Yellow Tailed, Long Billed, Short Billed, and the Glossy Black Cockatoo. Then the Galahs and Corellas at #3. Very Happy

    At the price that Galahs/Rosebreasteds go for here in the states, maybe the government should lift a little of the export ban, possibly to problematic species only...Hope that I didn't say something wrong here.

    Beautiful photos and birds trevor.
