A Federation Stained Glass Window of a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo in the Kitchen Door of a Villa - Thornbury

A Federation Stained Glass Window of a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo in the Kitchen Door of a Villa - Thornbury
Featuring a wonderful Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo on a branch surrounded by gum nuts and gum leaves, this very Australian themed stained glass window appears in the kitchen door of an Arts and Crafts style villa in the northern Melbourne suburb of Thornbury.

Built after Australian Federation (1901), houses often featured a number of pieces of Australiana (so popular in art and architecture around Federation as a way of expressing national patriotism).

The Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) is a relatively large white cockatoo found in wooded habitats in Australia and New Guinea. They can be locally very numerous, leading to them sometimes being considered pests. They are well known in aviculture, although they can be demanding pets. In Australia, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos can be found widely in the north and east, ranging as far south as Tasmania, but avoiding arid inland areas with few trees. They are numerous in suburban habitats in cities such as Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane.
