I'd expect cockatoos as well as kookaburras. Note that in the first poem, "The Wingdresser's Kitchen," the wings mapped to tribe, not continent or race. Australia's background includes a great many tribes. I'd expect that wings would usually follow groups of closely related people: tribes, clans, large families, etc. Also people are probably citing the prevailing wing type for a given tribe; within that, a certain family might have a different type, or an individual might have wings that nobody else seems to have.

Re: Yes...

Not just the cockatoos, rosellas and lorikeets.

Those are all in "Like a Cocky on a Biscuit Tin" now.

Re: Yes...

I wonder - what would emu wings look like on a human? (All the flightless bird possibilities are beginning to fascinate me - kiwis, cassowaries and so on. I know that people with moa wings did come up in one of these poems, but I'm having a hard time visualising it.)
