long billed corellas

Long-billed corellas Cacatua tenuirostris D564E - This group of parrots was feeding on grain spilt on the ground near a farm storage silo, and that's where Australian farmers would prefer to see these birds. They often descend from the skies in immense and screeching flocks and gorge themselves on fields of ripening grain, much to the displeasure of farmers who can do little to discourage them and to prevent the damage that these native birds often inflict on ripening crops.
