Cockatoo/Parrot

Price: 
unk

This big, colorful bird has been in my family for at least 70 years, yet I know very little about it. It was simply accepted and amused several generations of children. Of course, I shoulda, woulda, coulda asked my parents more about it before they passed away. I would appreciate any information about the big guy. Thanks.
