Little Corella


Species group:
 Cockatoos

Other name(s): Bare-eyed Cockatoo;
Short-billed Corella; Blood Stained Corella

Scientific name: Cacatua sanguinea

Appearance

Details: The Little Corella, often called the Bare-Eyed Cockatoo by American pet owners, is a comical-looking mid-sized cockatoo with a short bill, small crest, and baggy, saggy eyes. At least one expert ranked this species as the most intelligent of the cockatoos, which is high praise indeed, considering the competition. Too often overlooked in favor of the conventional beauties, the Little Corella can make an excellent pet for the experienced parrot owner who understands how to set limits. Their voice may not win any prizes, but they can develop a surprisingly large vocabulary, and they may be the best talker in the cockatoo group.

Warning: Cockatoos are powder down birds, and you should not obtain a Little Corella if anyone in the home suffers from allergies or asthma. Most of them are capable of extremely loud contact calls, or early morning “wake-up calls,” and it is also strongly recommended against choosing any cockatoo if you live in an apartment or have nearby neighbors.
