Hi all.
A couple of questions:
1. Can anyone translate the meaning of a Little Corella (a rescue) when
it makes a fairly quiet noise like across between a soft growl and a
pigeon's cooing? It intersperses this noise between loud "contact"
squawks and seems to often do it in front of its mirror.
2. I didn't get any replies to my RFI re "safe" quantities of sunflower
seed that can be consumed by a Common Bronzewing Pigeon that seems to be
addicted to them. Any help would be appreciated.
