Have you ever met a sulphur-crested cockatoo?
They are as intelligent as a toddler and can live up to 90 years of age.
Squeak and Squawk were rescued when their tree-hollow home was cut down.
They were only two weeks old.
You will fall in love with these clever cockies as you follow their journey from being rescued to release.


Nestling Cockatoos follows the journey of two baby cockatoos named Squeak and Squawk. They are rescued at two weeks of age, and looked after by a wildlife carer (Angela) until they are old enough to be released into the wild.

Writing style

Nestling Cockatoos uses simple language suitable for early and reluctant readers. The large font size and clean background support readability.

Photographic style

Nestling Cockatoos makes use of intimate photographs taken by the author, Angela Robertson-Buchanan. These week-by- week images marry perfectly with the text, and provide a behind-the-scenes look at wildlife conservation.
