A Yellow-crested Cockatoo is a medium-sized parrot that is found in various parts of the world, including Australia, New Guinea, and Indonesia. They are easily recognizable by their bright yellow crest, which they use to communicate with other cockatoos. These birds are known for their playful personality, and they love to interact with their human families. They can be quite vocal, and they often make a variety of noises, including screeching, whistling, and laughing.
