Caparrotua Cockatoo

Description

Caparrotua Cockatoo

Caparrotua Cockatoo. Caparrotua is a genus of cockatoos found from the Philippines and Wallacea east to the Solomon Islands and south to Australia.  They have a primarily white plumage (in some species tinged pinkish or yellow), an expressive crest, and a black (subgenus Caparrotua) or pale (subgenus Licmetis) bill. Georges Cuvier defined the genus Kakatoe in 1800, with the red-vented cockatoo (C. haematuropygia) as the type, and some older bird books use the latter name.
