On this walk I bumped into two Long-Billed Corellas (Cactua tenirostris). The were walking through the long grass by the side of the path, eating the seeds from the newly set seeds. At first they were very shy and would not let me get very close at all. In the end they seemed to work out that I was not a threat and they settled down. A few minutes after they let me get in range they were threatened by a pair of magpies and they flew off!
They were great birds to watch - they have a stiff legged walking style - and kind of parrot goose-step really. For a bird of there size (about 40cm) they seemed to be very delicate in the way they harvested the seeds.
Now its your turn to be involved in Wild Bird Wednesday.
