Painting of the beautiful Australian Major Mitchells (Cacatua Leadbeateri) also known as Pink Cockatoos. They are generally regarded as the most beautiful cockatoos with their stunning looks and delightful behaviour. They are mainly found in pairs and mate for life.
The birds were named after Sir Thomas Major Mitchell who was an Australian Explorer and a successful painter.
In skies of Blue where clouds float by,
Cockatoos perch eye to eye.
Dressed in their best they do impress,
With feathers on show and striking head crests.
