If there is a bird that entertains and delights it has to be the Corella. This little bird is such a character and full of mischief. The Little Corella is widespread throughout Australia and the most common amongst the three species of Corella. (The Little, Western and Long-Billed Corella) They often form large flocks and are a very common site around the city of Perth. They are a noisy bunch and very playful. In some urban areas they have become quite a nuisance and destructive to buildings and infrastructure. But generally they are just doing what they do best, foraging for food where seeding grasses are found and around watercourses. They are a clever bird and can often be seen in the same areas year after year, playing on light fittings, sitting and swinging around on street signs and hopping about on suburban roads quite unperturbed by passing cars. They squark and communicate with each other and are very entertaining to watch. This is a sweet photo and clearly portrays their beauty and sociable nature.
