Western Corellas

On the return trip to Perth I stumbled upon a large flock of Western Corellas perched in farmland trees near the highway.  Of all the corellas they seemed to have the most human-like voices and their agitated cries sounded decidedly worried that I was near.  Finally they settled down and I was able to film!
