You don't need a license to keep the 'normal' cockatoos or Corellas... You need a lisence to keep a Major Mitchell, though, and also a Palm Cockatoo, even though it's no Australian...

Even if the cockatoo was set free or escaped years ago, it would still retain some words, and I reckon if it's accepted into a flock, it should probably be allowed to stay there... There's nothing more beautiful than watching the birds in their natural environment... If the bird had recently got out...

Update on Paulie

I have now had Paulie for about 6 months... We haven't had any problems out of the ordinary. I coped with the biting by saying 'gentle' and not pull the hand away... I think that's what you call 'bluffing' - Paulie would lunge at my hand, and if I pulled my hand away she would go in for at bite, but...
