Observations

One specimen was still alive after 18.3 years in captivity [0669]. Another specimen has been kept as a pet for over 26 years after being acquired as an adult (website feedback), which is a plausible anecdote. Considering the longevity of similar species, however, maximum longevity could be significantly underestimated. Also known as Goffin's Cockatoo or Goffin's Corella.
