2 turtle doves…

for the 2nd day of Christmas…



Real turtle doves

…and in my beautiful sunburnt country the turtle doves morph into 2 cockatoos..

I’m assuming the songwriter is referring to the sulphur-crested ones…I would have preferred the yellow-tailed black cockatoo but that would have mucked up the rhythm of the song and we don’t want to do that. I do love it’s call though. 🙂

Image sources for the doves can be found here, here, here, here here AND here. 🙂
