Palm Cockatoo

Probosciger aterrimus (Gmelin, JF, 1788)

The Palm Cockatoo (Probosciger aterrimus), also known as the Goliath Cockatoo, is a large smoky-grey or black parrot of the cockatoo family. It is the only member of the subfamily Microglossinae and the only member of the monotypic genus, Probosciger. Its unique position within the cockatoo family has been confirmed by genetic studies of its left foot's most rear-facing claw. Source: Wikipedia
