It was a very overcast sky when we went for a short walk along the Murray River, Mannum, a small country town South Australia. The large gum trees alongside the wharf where the big River boats tie up were over flowing with a huge flock of Little Corella’s. These native Parrots fly in large flocks and love gum trees along the river banks to sit in and totally denude the trees of foliage. The lawns under the trees where people can sit at picnic tables was littered with twigs & light branches still with leaves attached, the strong curved beaks of the parrots don’t take long to snap them off.The Parrots are very acrobatic and entertaining to watch. It is a pity that they are so destructive. They also love the silos where grain is stored and the tarpaulin covers over huge mounds of excess grain is torn by the beaks so that the birds can get at the grain easily.
Thus these Corella’s are considered to be a Pest. They just don’t mix in with what Humans consider to be acceptable. They are often dispersed with shotguns and that is a pity.
