The sulphur-crested Cockatoo is well known to most Australians and is a familiar sight in heavily-timbered mountain ranges, open forests, paddocks, timber bordering watercourses, even towns and cities. The bird is usually seen in pairs or large flocks and its raucous ear-splitting screech makes it a very distinctive Australian.
