Palm Cockatoo

It has a unique territorial display where the bird (typically the male) drums with a large (i.e. up to 2.5 cm diameter, 15 cm long) stick or seed pod against a dead bough or tree, creating a loud noise that can be heard up to 100 m away.

The palm cockatoo often feeds during the early hours of the day on a diet that consists mostly of wild growing pandanus palmfruit and nuts from the kanari tree.
