Palm Cockatoos - A truly unique parrot

The Palm Cockatoo (Probosciger aterrimus) is the largest of the Australian Parrots. It is easily distinguished by its imposing beak, charcoal black feathers and red face patch. This rare and unique avian specie has adorned the Parrot Society of Australia’s logo since its foundation back in 1980. The Palm Cockatoo is also the chosen specie for the Parrot Society of Australia’s mascot known as Bamaga. The mascot was named after the township from which Palm Cockatoos are regularly seen in far north Queensland.
