Hello Everyone,

I have some photos I took a few weeks back of a female Long Billed Corella who comes in twice a day. They are not native to the Northern Territory and Australia Bird Society advised me the pair escaped captivity in Alice Springs and somehow ended up at my place. The female has a band on her leg but the male doesn't.

Hope you like the photos :-)

Cheers Denise

So if this is the only pair you get then this is quite unique for you. What other birds do you get in your yard?

Love the pics too ... thank you for sharing ;)

Great photos, Denise!

Do you live in Darwin, or out of town?

The corella is beautiful. She had a long flight to get to you from Alice Springs. Thanks so much for posting the pictures. Great photos, looking forward to many more.
