cockatoos for sale black palm cockatoo is a very dark, smoky gray color that appears blacker on some birds than others. The same color appears on their very long crest, as well as their feet and legs.
This otherwise single-colored bird has bright red patches of bare skin on its cheeks, which change colors when the bird gets excited. It is as striking as the dark grayish-black beak, giving it a very distinct profile up close.
Somewhat intimidating, their beak is only eclipsed in size by the hyacinth macaw within the parrot family. The size, shape, and the fact that the upper and lower mandibles don’t meet make it perfect for cracking open the toughest nuts.
In a monomorphic species, there is no visual way to tell males from females. If you’re curious about your bird’s sex, DNA sexing is necessary. cockatoos for sale
