Black Palm Cockatoo
Unlike most other parrots, the Black Palm Cockatoo is not considered an affectionate bird. It’s very sociable, like other cockatoos, needing regular interaction with its owners. But the size and temperament of this bird make it most suitable for experienced bird owners. It’s not an ideal pet for everyone, but the Black Palm Cockatoo has its rewarding characteristics.
While hand fed Black Palm Cockatoos make excellent, tame pets, they still require firm training and are not for those who are new to keeping large parrots.
Simply put: These are bold parrots who need bold owners. Do not adopt a Black Palm Cockatoo if you are intimidated by large birds.
Black Palm Cockatoos are also called Goliath Cockatoos or Great Black Cockatoos. They’re native to New Guinea and Indonesia.
