Rare Hybrid: Sulphur-crested Cockatoo x Long-billed Corella

November 12, 2010

This is probably the first image of such a hybrid in the wild. I found it today in a flock of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. It was much smaller than the Sulphurs, more like a Galah. It showed interesting feautures of both birds 🙂

But have a look yourself.

Firstly the likely parents

That’s the way it should be 😉
