Hi All,

I mostly enjoy just reading posts to this group but now I have a request for 

I have an anthropologist friend who works with US mid-west plains Native 
American groups (Cheyenne & Sioux etc) visiting Australia right now and he 
really wants to get them something to say thanks for their collaboration. These 
groups like tail feathers of various birds and the current feathers in fashion 
are the tail feathers of Australian black cockatoos, specifically white-tailed 
& yellow-tailed cockatoos & palm cockatoos - very difficult to come by in the 
US. I realise the most common of these in the ACT are yellow-tailed black 
cockatoos but does anyone know where around Canberra I might best find some 
tail feathers (that have been shed)?

Kind regards,

Dan Rayner
