Corellas are a subgenus of white cockatoos, parrots that feed on the seeds of grasses and herbaceous plants normally found on the ground.
They can be seen in many parts of Australia, while Western Corellas, both the Muir’s Corella and Butler’s Corella, can be seen in parts of Western Australia.
As seen from the photo, parts of them can be brightly coloured, making it easier for these sharp eyed individuals to identify each other. These birds can be seen travelling together in the thousands. Sometimes, another cockatoo, the Galah, can be seen interspersed amongst them.
