If i'm not wrong, its a Moluccan Cockatoo.
Not really sure, but... :)
The Moluccan Cockatoo, Cacatua moluccensis also known as Salmon-crested Cockatoo is a cockatoo endemic to south Moluccas in eastern Indonesia. At 50 cm, it is the largest of the white cockatoos. The female is larger than the males on average. It has white-pink feathers with a definite peachy glow, a slight yellow on the underwing and a large retractable recumbent crest which it raises when threatened to frighten potential attackers. It also has a loud voice and in captivity is a capable mimic.

In the wild the Moluccan Cockatoo inhabits lowland forests below 1000m. The diet consists mainly of seeds, nuts and fruit, as well as coconuts.

Hi Christophe, a super shot of the peeping Cockatoo, its as if he posed just for you! Nice light, colours and all clean and sharp. Lovely composition.

bonjour Christophe

belle photo de cet oiseau que je ne connaissais pas,
une bonne luminosité dans l'ensemble de l'image
avec d'excellent détails et j'aime la façon qu'il a posé ses griffes
