These Corella's are certainly locked in to the Tuggeranong CBD and Erindale centre. It's been that way for a good few years now.
These Corella's are long-time Tuggeranong and Erindale centric residents.

It's probably been discussed before, but does anybody wish to volunteer some answers as to why?

Is it simply due to a suitable 'food source' for Corella's which is the same for both locations? Do they also roost in the same vicinity?
I'm guessing it is simply due to a particular type of tree??

> Hi,
> Around 20 Little Corellas were feeding on "Maple" trees during lunch time outside of Hyperdome Shopping Mall, Tuggeranong, just outside of Reject Shop, along Anketel St, all the way to the trees in front of Subway and across the street at the car park where Swift Parrot was seen few years ago.
> I have also noticed at least 30 birds were feeding at low branch, crunching on the fruits last week but they did not seem to hang around after 5pm.
