These corrugated tin Cockatoos were made by the husband of my oldest school friend - Leila. We went to Primary School together near Young, New South Wales, 60 years ago!! Colin has also made Magpies and Galahs are his next project.

Hey rob, saw your comment on florries puzzle about liking loreena mckennitts version of greensleeves, i listened to it. Is nice, kind of has a haunting sound to it. anyways, here is one of my favorite versions of the song. Not sure if you heard it.

I've seen lots of different animals, chooks and things made from corrugated iron but this is the first Cookatoos, they do look very realistic Rob, Thanks Rob.

Ahh, I can see a cocka-too or three - and these kind don't make any noise or mess!!! Tell Leila's hubby that he did a fine job, rob!!
