Major Mitchell's Cockatoo Ornament


This Australian native bird’s namesake, Sir Thomas Mitchell the explorer once said: "Few birds more enliven the monotonous hues of the Australian forest than this beautiful species…” 

We couldn’t agree more. Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo is thought of as the most beautiful of all the cockatoos in Australia. However, as it both needs the dry of the interior and eucalypt trees to nest, its numbers are on the decline due to man-made changes.

  • 75mm x 113mm
  • Hand painted wooden ornament with jute twine / painted one-side
  • Designed and hand made locally in Sydney

Since this item is handmade, each ornament is slightly varied in patterning, texture, wood grain or burn.
