I was down the river a few days ago and could hear Little Corellas playing nearby. I located them, rolling about on the grass, wrestling with each other. They are hilarious to watch. It's pure play and even though those beaks can do a lot of damage, they never hurt each other. It's a fluid group, each bird breaking off from wrestling to search in the grass for food, only to rejoin its pals after a few seconds. Sometimes there'll be three or four little groups of up to five birds in a tangle of beaks, wings and claws. I was watching a group of them on a grassy hillside a few months back and they were locked together, tumbling down the hill and when they reached the bottom, they disengaged, walked-flew up the hill again and started all over again. I hope you don't mind that I've posted so many.
