It may not be possible to determine from the photo which species of Corella was involved with this hybrid. One person suggested Little Corella but without providing rationale. Mark now informs us that this bird was with a flock of about 1000 Litlle Corellas which seems quite good circumstantial evidence in support of Little Corella involvement, though it may well be that a Galah x Western Corella hybrid would look extremely close to this.
