Aside from my preference for calling cockatoos by their alternate name
[weeros - which reflects their call] some alternative names would be

Emu -             Chook on Stilts
Night Parrot -    Olive Pimpernel [they seek it here, they seek it
Paradise Parrot - Missed Tick
Malleefowl -      Sandmaster
Bush Turkey -     Compost King
Noisy Scrub Bird - Ninjabird [moves silently]

Regards, Laurie
