The White Flowering Pine

I was walking through Bunbury the other day when I spotted this rare White-Flowered Pine.

These flowers are quite unusual in that they are free moving, sometimes leaving the tree for extended periods of time.

Sometimes they are called a “Corella” and are often mistaken for members of the parrot family.

  1. Most incredible sight, and very, VERY noisy! Not much screeches like corellas en masse!

  2. Yes, that has to be the noisiest collection of flowers I have ever seen.

  3. Noisy and intelligent if other members of the family are anything to go by!

    Did you see the wonderful program on Aussie Parrots on TV last week?
