The lovely Moluccan Cockatoo is quite rare in its native habitat in Indonesia. As a pet it becomes quite attached to its owner. This is a large species and needs a lot of freedom out of its cage and a lot of attention. It has a loud voice and can be quite vocal at times. It is one of the most beautiful of the cockatoos and has lovely peach-colored plumage.
