Flock of Little Corella’s
In the Australian bush there is every chance you will be buzzed by a flock of birds.
Many species are noisy and sociable.
Pretty much like Australia’s people!
This is a flock of Little Corella’s that came upon my Canadian friend and me while we were walking.
You can see from the close up shot that they were looking right at us – I think they were enjoying screeching at us flying low and wheeling around and around until they headed off again.
I have traveled in Canada and found our birds were noisy by comparison to their Canadian cousins.
Little Corella’s like living inland from the coast.
They have yellow under wings and tail and a short crest on their head which is white.
They are 36 to 39 cm in size.
People sometimes confuse them for Sulfur Crested Cockatoos but these are a bigger bird, have a large yellow crest on their head and their style of flight is quite different.
