But this person said no, the statues are a particular crested cockatoo which is the only bird known to molest its young.

The poster pointed out how the cockatoos, when turned 90 degrees in silhouette side view, to face each other, make the exact silhouette of the owl seen on the dollar bill, and elsewhere. It is the crest of the two cockatoos which forms the owl's ears, seen in profile.

That fb post was gone when I went back to copy it. 'unsafe for the fb community'
You're definitely on to something there...
