More than fifty years after Alfred Hitchcock's Birds was released, you'd be forgiven for thinking a remake was being filmed in Nowra.
The town has played host to an enormous flock of little corellas for the past few months, and the pint-sized parrots know how to make their presence felt.
They have been visiting the area regularly since at least 1998.
Little corellas are most active around their roosting site - in Nowra, this is in Marriott Park, near the corner of Plunkett Street and the Princes Highway - in the early morning and evening. They spend the day looking for food and water, and can range far from home in their search.
In 2012, National Parks and Wildlife Service said they believed the corella flock was descended from escaped pets.
The corellas like to play, and aren't shy about it. They can be seen dangling from broken streetlight fixtures, hanging on with their beaks and swinging back and forth, or dangling upside-down.
They can also be seen "wrestling" with each other, using their beaks to pull the feet - or wings - out from under another unsuspecting bird.
Their antics can cause pandemonium for residents and businesses alike.

Their breeding season runs from October-May, and the flock may move on to greener pastures when it's over - but at least until then, the birds are here to stay.
In 2017, National Parks and Wildlife Service was in contact with Shoalhaven City Council about the corellas in Nowra, including their impacts and potential options. When the South Coast Register contacted the council this week, they referred enquiries to a State Government representative. He referred enquiries to NPWS. They were contacted for comment, but declined, saying as the flock was in an urban area it was a council responsibility.
