Description

Appearance: It is predominantly white with a slight pinkish hue around the face and a bluish periophthalmic ring (bare skin around the eyes). They have a short crest and a stout bill.
Lifespan: In the wild, they can live for around 20 years, while in captivity, they can live up to 50 years with proper care.

Habitat

Distribution: These cockatoos are widely distributed across Australia, especially in the north and east. They are also found in southern New Guinea.
Environment: Bare-eyed cockatoos are adaptable and can be found in a variety of habitats, including woodlands, savannas, grasslands, and urban areas.

Behavior

Social Structure: They are highly social birds, often found in large flocks. They are known for their loud and raucous calls.
Diet: Their diet primarily consists of seeds, nuts, fruits, berries, and insects. They are known to feed on agricultural crops, which sometimes brings them into conflict with farmers.
Breeding: The breeding season varies depending on the region. They typically nest in tree hollows, laying 2-4 eggs which are incubated for about 24 days. Both parents participate in rearing the young.

Conservation Status

IUCN Status: The bare-eyed cockatoo is listed as Least Concern by the IUCN due to its wide range and large population.
Threats: Although they are not currently under significant threat, habitat destruction and the illegal pet trade can pose risks to their populations.

In Captivity

As Pets: They are popular as pets due to their playful and affectionate nature. However, they require a lot of social interaction and mental stimulation to prevent boredom and behavioral issues.
Care: Providing a large cage, plenty of toys, and regular out-of-cage time is essential. A balanced diet with a variety of fresh foods is also important for their health.

Overall, the bare-eyed cockatoo is a resilient and adaptable species, thriving both in the wild and in captivity.
