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
>> that they were about five times the height of an average single-storey
>> 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.
