One of the most friendly and sociable companion birds commonly available on the market today is the umbrella cockatoo, often known as the white cockatoo or the big white-crested cockatoo. The umbrella, a native of Indonesia, is little smaller than the Moluccan cockatoo but is not less charming or endearing. This gregarious cockatoo is noted for its bizarre behavior and for being too attached to its owners.
The umbrella's entirely white crest, which rises like an umbrella when the bird is aroused, disturbed, or ready to play (or bite! ), sets it apart from other white cockatoos. The undersides of the wings and tail are light yellow, while the beak and legs are of a dark gray color.
