Birds That Start With C

C is the starting letter of some interesting bird species:

The Common Cormorant, for instance, is a large sea bird often spotted perched on rocks near oceans. They exhibit curved necks and long legs, alongside an unmistakable double-breasted appearance at the bottom of their neck.

Cockatoos are white or cream-colored parrots that originate from Australia and Indonesia. They’re renowned for their impressive vocalization that consists of talking, singing, whistling, and even playing peek-a-boo.

Moreover, these birds have a crest atop their heads that elevates or flattens depending on its emotion.

Unlike other C birds, the Cassowary has a much lower population despite being native to northern Australia and New Guinea. Standing tall at over five feet high with exquisite feathers, this bird can be quite aggressive when protecting itself or its territory.

Lastly, there’s the Crane Bird: these large wading birds can be located in wetlands or grasslands but additionally in urban areas if they are able to secure food scraps left by humans! Reaching about four feet in height and spreading their wings prior to taking off – presenting a spectacular sight skyward!
