“Triton Cockatoo”

Cacatua galerita triton

Endemic to New Guinea and adjacent islands: Waigeo, Gam, Kofiau, Misool, Batanta, Salawati, Numfoor, Biak, Num, Japen, the Trobriand Islands, Goodenough, Fergusson, Normanby, and the Louisiade Archipelago.


Predominantly in humid lowland and foothill forests but reportedly also occurs in some savannas and other semiopen habitats, and in mountains up to around 2,000 m elevation.

The potentially distinguishable subspecies eleonora is native to the Aru Islands south of western New Guinea, and has reportedly been introduced to the nearby Kai Islands.

A well-established introduced population of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos in Palau has been ascribed to triton, but this identification does not appear to be independently verifiable from publicly available source materials.
