Story: Ngatijirri Nests
'Ngatijirri' (Budgerigar) are small, bright green birds native to central Australia which are common around the Yuendumu area, especially after the summer rains. Men would hunt for Ngatijirri nests, robbing them of eggs and juvenile birds, which are both considered delicacies.
I bought the ties (3) as a present for my husband. He loved them. The quality was excellent. Very happy with my purchase.
