The size was the same as a S-cC, perhaps slightly smaller.

The bare blue skin around the eyes, the longish beak and the pink patch on the lores all suggest to me that Long-billed Corella X Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is a likely correct label. Can Shorty comment on the size of the bird?


I suggest a sulphur-crested cockatoo missing a few crest feathers is something we would be familiar with (all birds moult their feathers at least once a year), but this is different from the usual.

Or is it a sulphur-crested cockatoo missing a few crest feathers?

I had a visit at my bird bath this afternoon, i think it looks good for a Long-billed Corella X Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.
