Bill & All,

I can recall for the past ten years of my life in my current house seeing flocks of 10 or more Little Corellas fly over. My house by the way is in Carrara on the Gold Coast in Queensland. The Corellas for some reason only number around 10 to 30 and being that they have been their for around 10 years or more i am wondering why there are so few. I believe however that due to the fact of where we live we only have one or two large Eucalypts in the area and this is why the birds are not breeding as much as there are not enough hollows. I however don't see many Galahs.

With reguard to Long-billed Corellas i see them every now and than near my old high school numbering about 3 to 5 birds. I remember one pair were trying to nest at the school but left. Well hope this helps. I have never heard of the little corellas in Carrara as being aviary escapees however i believe this to be the case. 

Yours Sincerely
Mr Jade Welch
Gold Coast,
