    I would say so, but it's hard to tell in photos alone. A vaulted skull should be easily found by palpating the bird's head. Not all crested birds will have vaulted skulls but those with the largest crests typically will. There will be an obvious fleshy rise beneath the feathers if the skull is vaulted.
