Thanks for that Matt.
I heard corellas flying over my place yesterday afternoon, but didn't get outside in time to spot them. I also heard SCC calls from the same direction, so it could well have been the same flock.
This isn't the first time I've seen or heard Corellas in Belconnen, but they're still very occasional visitors at this point, and usually in flocks. Doubtless that will change before too long.

Hi All

Yesterday afternoon I saw a flock of SC Cockatoos feeding on the grass at the intersection of Southern Cross and Kingsford Smith Drives. I noticed that three of the 10 or so birds were actually long-billed correlas, or possibly hybrids as they were looking a bit scragglier than they appear in images. This is perhaps the first time I have seen correlas in Belconnen, and I was wondering if anyone else has seen them too.
