How many different types of ‘cockatoos’ in these images?
There are four in all – Long-billed Corellas are in the vast majority, together with a few Little Corellas, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Galahs. Spilt grain, a feature of autumn in the local farming landscape is a great attractor.
The Little Corellas can be distinguished by the small crest (not always apparent), shorter bill and lack of red around the head and throat. There are roughly ten in the image above.
