Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo

Lophochroa leadbeateri
As there were a number of reports from Uriarra Crossing and around Canberra between 1960 and 1966, and only one since, it seems likely that this species is a rare vagrant in the area.
Except in the higher ranges, this is a common breeding species.

Long-billed Corella

Cacatua tenuirostris
The locals birds are mainly escapees. There is a probability that we have occasionally rare visitors.
Probably permanently established and breeds in the area; an uncommon species. Its origin is uncertain and may have started from escaped cage birds.
