Little corella

Little corella

A noisy bunch
Little corellas are expressive, social birds with a variety of sounds. The most common is the alarm call, which is a high-pitched screech.

Home decorating
Little corellas are secretive in their nesting sites. Breeding pairs prepare their site with fresh bedding by chewing the inside of a tree hollow in to small pieces. Some pairs develop a permanent bond and will use the same nesting site over several years.

Little corella picnic
Although the little corellas roost in trees, they mostly feed on the ground, eating various seeds and legumes. Some corellas in Western Australia have adapted a longer bill to help them dig up and feed on bulbs.
