Sorry to dominate the list today - but it does highlight the need to keep different topics in separate messages if possible - this makes it a lot easier for people searching the archives, which seems to be happening a lot more thesse days. Using a clear SUBJECT helps as well :-)

This morning there was a pair of LITTLE Corellas just outside my back fence - first one wheeling around calling, then sitting high in a tree calling, then it was joined by its (possible) mate.

I've seen Long-billeds here occasionally - they are regularly near the You Yangs a few Km away, but my only other Little Corella in the district was a fairly obvious cagebird on a day out in a local park.

What is the general thinking here? They didn't behave like cagebirds (but I'm hardly an expert on that). Could they be part of a feral population that is establishing itself in the area, as elsewhere? Or could I be looking at the Real Thing?
