Galah aka Rose-breasted Cockatoo

A cockatoo is a parrot that is any of the 21 species belonging to the bird family Cacatuidae, the only family in the superfamily Cacatuoidea. Along with the Psittacoidea (true parrots) and the Strigopoidea (large New Zealand parrots), they make up the order Psittaciformes (parrots). The family has a mainly Australasian distribution, ranging from the Philippines and the eastern Indonesian islands of Wallacea to New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Australia.

ok but my birds don't get to claim territory. Even their caging is rotated once a week so they only get to stay one week in either cage to avoid being territorial. Your YF is a.k.a YC isn't it like my Arnie?

Yup, same as yours but the only difference is that mine has lack of yellow colours on top of his head.. With broader body he seems like a YN to me..

hmmm......mine has a lot of yellow (with red border feathers) on the head, some at the border with the legs. Maybe yours is still young and needs to molt more yellow.
