These are the smallest Cockatoos in the pet bird trade. Most have a pink tint to them, though many are entirely white. The underside of their wings, crest, and tail is yellow. Almost all Goffin’s Cockatoos have a pink or salmon-colored patch near their cheeks, which gives them the appearance of blushing. Like other Cockatoos, they have a crest which will pop up when they are startled or excited. However, their crest is significantly smaller than that of other Cockatoos, and resembles a shark’s fin rather than a large headdress, and smaller and more round than the crest of a Ducorps Cockatoo.
