Little corella        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Australia has a wonderful array of parrots; many are colorful but there are several species of white cockatoos.   This is perhaps the commonest and most wildly-distributed.   Like many parrots, little corellas are social and are usually found in large flocks.   Also like many parrots they are quite vocal -- I think a large group of these makes about the noisiest bird call out there -- really deafening if you're close.   These were drinking from a small puddle in Kakadu Park in the Northern Territory.
            Other parrot species on this site include the double-eyed fig parrot, red-tailed black cockatoo, galah, gang-gang cockatoo, Baudin's black cockatoo, Carnaby's black cockatoo, sulphur-crested cockatoo, yellow-tailed black cockatoo, king parrot, red-winged parrot, rainbow lorikeet, scaly-breasted lorikeet, musk lorikeet, swift parrot, superb parrot, mulga parrot, 'mallee' ringneck, western ringneck, eastern rosella, western rosella, and red-capped parrot.
