Sulphur-crested cockatoos are primarily vegetarian and can cause significant damage to crops. They dig in soil where seeds have recently been sown, ingest ripening crops and also occasionally cause damage to harvested crops wrapped in bales of hay, from which they tear off the plastic.

They feed on a wide variety of seeds, fruits and buds, which they find on the ground and in the trees.

Sulphur-crested cockatoos are found in Australia.
