A Tanimbar Corella held as a pet at a jungle restaurant in Phitsanulok. It is overall white, with pinkish-salmon lores, a pinkish tinge on the upperparts, and a washed yellow tinge on the underside of the wings and tail.

 

It has a short crest, of which the feathers can be raised (fig.). The legs and feet are bluish-grey, the beak is deep pale, and the colour of the eyes can range from reddish-brown in females to brown or black in males, though otherwise both sexes are similar.
