On Long Billed Corellas

Posted Monday 7th June 2010 at 01:40 by Francis Duggan
You hear them squawking loudly in the evening late
As to roost on the tall gums they do congregate
The white long billed corellas in large flocks much noise do create
Though 'tis said that their numbers are decreasing at a steady rate
With their long hooked bills they dig for bulbs and tubers in the ground
And though within their small range they do seem to abound
Their rate of reproduction 'tis said does seem rather slow
By those who of their ways much do claim to know
Familiar by sight and in their distinctive cries
These large ground feeding parrots not hard to recognize
From mid Winter to late Spring in hollow in standing stump or cavity in a tree
They lay dull white eggs mostly two sometimes three
As birds go they do live to be very old
And a large flock of them in flight quite a sight to behold.
