Goffin's Cockatoo

The Tanimbar corella (Cacatua goffiniana) also known as Goffin's cockatoo or Goffin's corella, is a species of cockatoo endemic to forests of YamdenaLarat and Selaruall islands in the Tanimbar Islands archipelago in Indonesia. The species has been introduced to the Kai Islands, Indonesia, Puerto Rico and Singapore. This species was only formally described in 2004, after it was discovered that the previous formal descriptions pertained to individuals of a different cockatoo species, the Ducorps' or Solomons cockatoo (Cacatua ducorpsii). Tanimbar corellas are the smallest of the white cockatoos. This species is Near Threatened due to deforestation and bird trade. The species breeds well in captivity and there is a large avicultural population.

Lightning aka The Scrambled Egg was surrendered to the For the Love of Birds Sanctuary flock in early 2018 and his age is unknown. His previous owners were afraid of him and said he was a mean bird. Although crazy (in a good way) hence the nickname The Scrambled Egg, he has proved to be an extremely friendly and sweet bird. There are some videos of Lightning on the For the Love of Birds YouTube channel if you would like to check them out, the link is on the main Sanctuary page.
