Cockatoos have a much more restricted range than parrots,occurring naturally only in Australia and nearby islands. Have characteristic curved beak and a zygodactyl foot (two toes forward and two toes backward). This one, at the CINCINNATI Zoo, moved around on his tree perch like a clown, first ,using it's beak then it's feet. Like the way its looking at the camera. What's it thinking?????
