We saw many cockatoos - both the white "sulphur crested" and the pink/grey "galahs" throughout Australia, but the most in the Red Centre.  We also saw black cockatoos but could not photograph them.

Another shot of this playful bird.  A pet store in a small town where we stopped had galahs for sale for $30, hand-raised tame galahs sell for upwards of $2000 in the U.S.A.
