I helped him design the cockatiel whirligig, which is now part of his line.

Lovely Kezza! You paint beautifully. BTW the "galah" above is a Major Mitchell cockatoo. I'd love to see some of them in the wild too! Thanks for sharing.

Just love the expression on the cockatiel. Looking very determined! Just like mine doing laps around the lounge room. :acute:

My favorite is the little cockatiel! You rarely see anything for them like this! Nice idea!
