A large smoky-grey parrot of the cockatoo family native to New Guinea and far north Queensland, Australia.

The palm cockatoo is an unusual bird, being an ancient species and one of the few bird species known to use tools.

He can whistle like crazy or even drum with a large stick against a tree. The reason why palm cockatoos drum is still a mystery 🙂 but I know for sure Rocco can grumble, sing, laugh… I just love this guy!
