|Little Corella Cacatua sanguinea
The Little Corella is distributed in the arid areas of Australia and is missing from eastern, south-eastern and south-western Australia. It is also found in Papua New Guinea. See the distribution map at Birdlife International.
It is small, white and with a short crest that is not often raised. Its bill is pale-grey and it has blue-grey bare skin around the eye. There is also a pink wash between the eye and the bill and pink can show through from the underfeathers of the head and throat (as in the birds in the background in photo 2).
|Like most cockatoos, it forms large flocks and night-time roosts and can be very destructive. They had stripped bare the tree in photo 3.|
