The “sulphur” in their name refers to the bright yellow plumage on their crest and feathers

As part of the parrot family, sulphur crested cockatoos have the same defining features – a long curved beak, strong legs and zygodactyl feet, which means they have two toes facing forwards and two facing backwards. This allows them to climb exceptionally well or grasp objects with one foot while standing on the other – pretty handy when you have no hands!
