Little corella x Galah cockatoo (Apricot cockatoo)

One of the most common cockatoo hybrids, happening most commonly in the wild. Many of these hybrids are attacked and kicked out of galah or corella flocks, though this is not always the case. These hybrids are almost always a light salmon color with light grey wings. Hybrids with more corella “influence” will have white spots on their wings as well. This combination was first bred in captivity in 1955 and in the following years, though most offspring died due to neglect or, as one necropsy found, weak skeletal structure. K. Lukaszewicz, the director of the Wroclaw Zoo in Poland, later released the story on Aviculture Magazine.
