Birdline Australian Capital Territory

Published sightings for the week ending 9 Jun 2013.

Fri 7 Jun Sulphur-crested Cockatoo x Little Corella Turner
Hybrid Sulphur-crested Cockatoo x Little Corella feeding in a group of SCC along the bike path, very close to where I found a Long-billed Corella a few weeks ago. Size comparable to that of a SCC. Crest shorter than that of SCC and golden rather than yellow. Blue eye ring. Record shots taken with my phone.

Mon 3 Jun Budgerigar Lake Burley Griffin
This morning a pair of wild-type Budgerigar were seen near the National Library by the bike path. No idea if they are escapees but thought it worth reporting just in case.
