We had a number of Corellas that dropped in to visit when we lived in Gloucester. We loved having them drop by as they were a lot of fun. They are a parrot that likes to play. Likes to have fun and thus those watching also have a lot of fun. They’ll hang upside down, use a roof as a slippery slide and even hang on the blade of a windmill until it falls off (perhaps dizzy), falling to the ground only to fly up and do it again.
They are different to white cockatoos which are the nasty parrot in our parrot world. The white sulphur crested cockatoo holds a grudge and is quite happy to pay you back by eating all the wood on your house. Verandahs, window sills – you name it they’ll eat it.
The corellas can be recognised because they have beautiful blue eyes.
I was so happy to see some local corellas the other day.
I did wonder though what he would do if the little bird peed on him. I guess the seeds were just too tasty to worry about.
