What the Fighting Yanks See 455 cnarles larreuL Major Mitchell Ruffles His Fine Feathers and Tells a Tall One This perky pink cockatoo is a far cry from the green parrot the Yanks left at home mimicking the family. But he is a cousin of that familiar pet and a relative of the "hallelujah bird" which served as a sentry for Yanks in the Solomons (opposite page). Pink-feathered, orange-crested Major Mitchell is one of the best known of Australia's cockatoo clan. Aussies call him their "wee juggler."
