Another day spent sketching at the Australian Museum. This time it was Australian birds.
The Long-billed Corella is a medium sized white cockatoo (to 38 cm) found in extreme south eastern Australia. They can become a pest to grain and crop trees and in some areas feral populations have established themselves.
The Gang Gang cocktoo is a parrot and is found in South Eastern Australia. Found in mountain, forests , woodland but also urban areas. It grows to 34 cm .
I have never either of these, but I have only lived in Sydney for a few years. I asked a few other Sydneysiders and they are familiar with both of these birds.
