The birds were utterly confident that they were in change and on one occasion I had to shoo them out of the way of a passing car. These are rather talkative birds, and at times the place was very noisy. This is the first time I’ve seen flocks of corellas on the ground in Melbourne, although I have been seeing and hearing them overhead for a number of weeks. In the past these birds were only really common in the west of the state, but they seem to have moved. I have to wonder if it’s a result of either the drought or the fact that the drought is over?
You can find more world birds here, and you can see the latest post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the page. Enjoy the birds.
