Corella Special

February 17, 2012

Corellas, that’s how Australians call the three species of  Western Corella (Cacatua pastinator), Long-billed Corella (Cacatua tenuirostris) and Little Corella (Cacatua sanguinea). They are not very popular over here, because they are very noisy and seen as a pest. However, they are one very active and lots of fun to watch and photograph. They are real clowns.

The first pictures show the very rare nominat race of the Western Corella (Cacatua pastinator), followed by Long-billed Corellas (Cacatua tenuirostris) and Little Corellas (Cacatua sanguinea).

The last few pictures hows the first ever photographed wild hybrid of a Long-billed Corella and a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)
