Little Corellas were not found on the Swan Coastal Plain until the 1970s. They now appear to be thriving, probably because clearing, urbanisation and the drying climate have made the coastal plain environment more suitable for them. They are often found in mixed flocks with feral Long-billed Corellas, Western (Long-billed) Corellas and Galahs, with which they sometimes hybridise.
Including Bismarck Archipelago and Bougainville
All of the 943 species known to occur are covered, including the extraordinarily high total of 456 endemics, as well as 5 introduced species, 2 species yet to be formally described and a separate appendix with 75 vagrants. Subspecies are listed also to give a comprehensive overview of the remarkable regional avifauna.
