Japanese mascot drummer Nyango Star https://www.dailydot.com/uncli…..mer-memes/

So … there was a white cat who died and came back as an apple and now it wants to come to America? How will that help them become a cat again? And where did they learn to play drums? There are still more questions than answers. We do know the cat is named after Ringo Starr , which makes sense because the Japanese word for apple is pronounced “ringo.”

Rare ‘Ringo Starr’ cockatoo faces extinction due to habitat loss in Far North Queensland

The Palm Cockatoo, which can make its own musical instrument, is only found on the top of Cape York in far north Queensland but its numbers are declining rapidly.

“They not only look good but are the rock stars of the bird world … making drumsticks from branches and banging out tunes to attract the bird ladies.”

Professor Heinsohn said the Palm Cockatoo is the only bird in the world that uses a tool musically.

“They break off a branch and peel back the bark, they whittle it down to about 30 centimetres and they hold it in their foot and tap on the edge of their nest hollow,” he said.

“They have a very good sense of rhythm and different styles of drumming signatures.

“Some males like to come in with a real fast flourish and then they slow down and get into a steady beat, other ones will have a bit of a flourish in the middle of their routine, or some will leave it to the end.

“There are 18 males that we’ve recorded in action trying to attract a female and they were all different.”

Despite the Palm Cockatoo’s best efforts to lure mates, Professor Heinsohn said a recent field trip to Queensland’s far north showed the bird population had been declining at a rapid rate.

This is where they live.

Thank you, AG – that’s fascinating. I hope this species manages to survive.

Hate to break it to you but I’m not holding on hope for the survival of those birds (not that I’d heard of them 5 minutes ago) because our environmental protection regulations are crap and I can’t see the current government putting any protections in for them – in fact, they want to put lots of coal mines in around that area. 

So bloody cool that there’s a Ringo Starr bird though!!a-hard-days-night-ringo-10ahdn_ringo_09
