Yes to both Chris' messages. Unfortunately John Layton's comment to them that "the bird once bore a striking resemblance to a species of red-tailed black-cockatoo." may not have helped. Sure, broadly speaking you could correctly say a Glossy Black-Cockatoo is a species of red-tailed black-cockatoo. However that is confusing a general with a specific, like the difference between ground parrot and Ground Parrot. There already is a lot on this (see below). Is this really worth pursuing?
