Mount Vernon Cockatoo 3D Ornament
In 1799, the presence of "several species of parrot" on the piazza was noted by a guest, among which a cockatoo. Mrs. Washington and her granddaughter Nelly owned many exotic birds such as parrots and cockatoos. Birds were a feature of life at Mount Vernon for at least three decades. As early as April 8, 1773, George Washington purchased a parrot from the Captain of a West Indian trading ship that stopped at Mount Vernon.
