The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is one of the larger and more widespread of Australia's cockatoos. Frequently sought as a cage bird in and out of Australia, they can be so numerous that in crop-growing areas of Australia they are shot or poisoned as pests. Government permit is required, though, as they are a protected species under the Australian Commonwealth Law.
