Long-billed Corella
Cacatua tenuirostris
Cacatuidae

There were once two subspecies of the Long-billed Corella — one lived in western Victoria and the other in south-western Australia. Then, in 1994, suddenly there were no Long-billed Corellas in Western Australia. This was not a conservation issue, but a taxonomic one. With the stroke of a pen (and after years of scientific research) it was decided that the two subspecies differed sufficiently and were, in fact, two separate species. Thus the Long-billed Corella in Western Australia was renamed the Western Corella, a species in its own right.


Description

The Long-billed Corella is a medium-sized white cockatoo with a short crest (not always visible) and short tail, stocky body and a distinctive long upper mandible to its bill. There is a faint yellowish wash on the undersides of its wings and tail, and orange-red splashes on its forehead, throat and an orange-red crescent across its upper breast. The eye ring is pale grey-blue. It is a conspicuous and gregarious species, often seen foraging in large flocks on the ground.
