My thanks to Andrew Stafford, Laurie Knight, and Margaret Cameron, for the
probable identity of my two white birds.
I'll happily settle for Corellas, without choosing between Little or
Long-billed. I hadn't realised that we had them in Brisbane.
>> March 16, 6:30 AM, or thereabouts, and a pair of white birds flew over
>> suburban Hawthorne in an easterly direction. Determined, straight flight.
>> Hard to estimate height, not knowing the size of the bird. My best guess is

>> house, and were about the size of a Sulph.-crested Cockatoo or a bit
>> smaller. Definitely not Egrets, nor White Ibis.
>> I would probably have dismissed them as S-c Cs, but for their intermittent
>> calls. Single notes and somewhat musical in quality. Not at all like the
>> sounds I associate with S-c Cs.
