Gagalarrin (Major Mitchell) Cockatoo Vintage Bird Greeting Card


When I fell in love with this bird it struck me how very odd to have an Englishman’s name attached to such an Australian bird – how does Major Mitchell fit with this quintessential Aussie? So I started searching for their original names, the names given to this wonderful character for ten’s of thousands of years by the original people of this land.

I found “Gagalarrin”  in Yuwaalaraay, “Wijagala” or “Weejugla” in Wiradjuri. Gagalarrin sounds like the bird (although I could really easily be saying to myself it the wrong way but it is much better than Major Mitchell). These beautiful birds are also know as Pink Cockatoos, Leadbeater’s Cockatoo and Lophochroa leadbeateri.

Share joy with this charming vintage bird greeting card!
