Quotation: “Because of their white and salmon-pink plumage and large, bright red and yellow crest, Major Mitchell Cockatoos are generally recognised as the most beautiful of all cockatoos. Neville loved having his photograph taken and was a show-off for the camera”. - Leila Jeffreys
The Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo (Lophochroa leadbeateri) also known as Leadbeater’s Cockatoo or Pink Cockatoo, is a medium-sized cockatoo restricted to arid and semi-arid inland areas of Australia. It is here placed in its own monotypic genus Lophochroa, though to include it in Cacatua as others do is not wrong as long as the corellas are also included there.
