The Little Corella (Cacatua sanguinea), also known as the bare-eyed cockatoo, blood-stained cockatoo, short-billed corella, little cockatoo, and blue-eyed cockatoo, is a white cockatoo native to Australia and southern New Guinea.
It it also a sure sign that the cooler months have arrived in Melbourne when large flocks of these birds can be found in the area on which I live. They are noisy, playful, messy and very welcome.
These birds are some of a flock of abut 100 the dropped in to feed on some garden plants just behind my house. I have photographed (and posted) this species a number of time before, but I really like them!
