I wrote about these Little Corellas in a post entitled "unhinged Corellas" about a week ago. About two years ago this flock had 200+ in it. At about 5.40pm every day for about 2 months the whole flock would fly over my house making such a noise that if you were trying to have a conversation you would have to close the doors and windows in the room just to hear anyone talking. Phone conversations were near impossible in the time they were in the vicinity.
My street is a small cul de sac lined with Winterglow trees. All the streets in the area are lined with these trees and the flock just loves them. Between them and the Cockatoos a fully grown tree can be stripped in a day. The numbers of the Corella flock are down on previous years, but when they all get together there can still be about 100. Thankfully, with only 100 Corellas instead of 200 we can now hear ourselves think at 5.40 every afternoon.
