Or maybe a hybrid between a S-c C & a Galah or even between a S-c C & a Pink (MM) Cockatoo? or if otherwise normal, a bird that has got itself stained or painted by some deliberate or accidental encounter with people.

Hi All

While driving along Southern Cross Drive, a few minutes ago, I believe I saw an SCcockatoo with a pinky-orange body instead of the usual white. It was with a few other normal cockies as well as some galahs. This flock was probably 200 meters from the intersection where SC Drive and Kingsford Smith drive intersect (in the direction towards Westfield).
Could this possibly be a subspecies, or just a trick of the light?

Regards, Matt.
