A cross stitch pattern of a pair of Long-billed Cockatoo birds (or Long-billed Corella). An embroidery design to add an Australian native touch to any room.
Long-billed Corellas are medium-sized, white feathered parrots that mate for life. They form small flocks of a few hundred individuals. Their native habitat is along the south-east coast of Australia. These birds are similar in appearance to the Little Corella and Sulfur-crested Cockatoo.
Inspired by an Elizabeth Gould vintage nature painting.
