Long- or Slender-billed Corella or Slender-billed Cockatoo

The Long-billed Corella, Cacatua tenuirostris, is native to Australia.

Specifically they can be found in the wild around western Victoria and southern New South Wales.

Feral populations have also sprung up in Sydney and Perth from the release of unwanted birds. This has serious implications in Western Australia where they may hybridize with the endangered southern race of the Western Corella

.The Long-billed Corella has a small distribution, usually inhabiting woodlands, river banks and farming land. It is getting increasingly seen in urban areas as well.

      Corellas as Pets

      Although they were once uncommon as pets, their population has stabilized in the last decade.

      One of the reasons why Long-billed Corellas have gained popularity as pets may very well be its amazing ability to mimic words and whole sentences to near perfection.

      The long-billed corella has been labeled the best “talker” of the Australian Cockatoos – possibly even of all native parrot species.
