Long-billed Corella Budgewoi, NSW. Dec 2014. Long-billed Corellas are from Western Victoria and parts of Western New South Wales near the Murray River. They are not well liked by the "Man on the Land" as they can cause thousands of dollars of damage to crops.
Some cage birds have escaped or been set free over time and they have bred into small colonies. Feral flocks can now be found along the east coast of Australia.
