Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo

With its soft-textured white and salmon-pink plumage and large, bright red and yellow crest, it is often described as the most beautiful of all cockatoos. It is named in honour of Major Sir Thomas Mitchell, who wrote, “Few birds more enliven the monotonous hues of the Australian forest than this beautiful species whose pink-coloured wings and flowing crest might have embellished the air of a more voluptuous region.” Cacatuidae Family

Today is the beginning of a new series for Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures. A good friend of mine, Rhonda Sawtelle, (Create a Positive Day), has been posting every day on her Facebook a different attribute of our Lord God. She has been going through them alphabetically. What if each day, we had a different attribute and a bird that starts with that same letter. My challenge is to try to at least get through the alphabet at least once. Maybe several rounds. Stay tuned!

*** Update – Monday we drove over to Melbourne, FL for my six-week follow-up from my back surgery. All is progressing very well. Still need a walker yet. Thanks for your continued prayers. On the way back home on Tuesday, we stopped by Brinson Park Pier in St. Cloud to see what kind of birds were there. Never visited that park before. What a treat. A Snail Kite eating a snail. I have some great video that I’ll share soon. Snail Kites are Birds of the Bible, as are all Kites. Also, during the ride, we spotted two Northern Crested Caracaras. Another treat.
