elenora- cockatoo, parrot


Elenora Cockatoos range in size from 16 to 17 inches with a weight of 500 to 600 grams.

They are large white birds with a yellow crest and yellow under the wings and tailoriginating from Indonesia, Southern Moluccas and the Aru Islands.

They can be a devoted pet, but you have to have experience with Cockatoos and must be able to devote at least one hour per day to them.

Elenaora Cockatoos can also be extremely loud and demanding as they are very intelligent, and can escape out of almost anything. If proper attention is not given, this can result in excessive screaming and feather picking.

Cockatoos are similar to dogs in that they thrive on affection and touch but usually do not develop extensive vocabularies. African Greys, noted for their great talking ability, fall between these two personality categories, having traits of both. Greys tend to be more individualistic, so it depends on the Grey as to the kind of personality it may have.



Macaws do not make ideal apartment pets because of their twice-daily screaming sessions, at sunrise and sunset, and their ability to dismantle anything they can easily reach, such as the apartment building! However, for those who have a suitable environment, macaws make great pets and can develop pretty good vocabularies and fascinating antics.


What to Look For.

Look for a bird that is interactive and interested in sights and sounds. Look for a baby that expresses interest and attention by puffing out its head and neck feathers, stretching its wings (singly with a leg out or both shoulders stretched straight up), bobbing its head up and down solicitously or quickly wagging its tail from side to side.

These easily observable happiness behaviors are indications that the bird is interested in what is going on.
