Cockatoo cacophony

Autumn sees the noisy gathering of mixed flocks of cockatoos and corellas on the cleared country around Newstead. Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Long-billed Corellas abound, with a few Little Corellas increasingly joining in.

  1. In Birregurra township we have had hundreds of Sulphur crested and corellas for the past couple of months.Their numbers have thinned down considerably in the past few days But where have they gone to? I’m wondering if there is a tracking system, on the internet,,which I could access, which would show me the movement of large flocks of Sulphur crested and corellas in Victoria
    I love your photo of “Always the show off”

    I love the way the cockatoo’s comb always stands up ….looks like such a skylark. Thanks for the photo Geoff.
