Goffin's Cockatoo, also known as Goffin's Corella or Tanimbar Corella, has been part of the Birdorable family since August 2009. These beautiful white birds are native to the Tanimbar islands in Indonesia. This species, popular in aviculture at least since the 1970's, was only formally described for science in 2004! Although the Goffin's Cockatoo was discovered as early as the 1860's by German naturalist Otto Finsch, and named for his Dutch friend Andreas Leopold Goffin, it recently came to light that Finsch's data was based on two entirely different species. The bird confused with the Goffin's Cockatoo was the Solomons Cockatoo. Whatever name you like to call this lovely crested cutie, be sure to have a look at our collection of Birdorable Goffin's Cockatoo t-shirts & gifts!

The Black Woodpecker, Dryocopus martius, is native to northern parts of Eurasia. They can be identified by their large size (about 18 inches long) and their all-black plumage. Black Woodpeckers sport a scraggly head crest of red, which is larger in males than in females.
The Black Woodpecker recently joined Birdorable, bringing our total number of woodpecker species up to six.
