      Lesser sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua sulphurea)

      Where is the Cacatua sulphurea from.

      I would have said that was a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) from Australia.

      Lesser's are from Indonesia - Sulawesi and the Lesser Sundas.

      But I would have said Greater Sulphur-Crested too - the Lesser usually has a large bright yellow spot over the ear and cheek.

      I think its a lesser sulphur-crest. You can see the yellow ear-patch faintly, but also the beak on lessers always looks a little too big for the bird.
