We had many Corella's in our garden this morning. One of them looked like a young galah, but also like a Western Corella. Years ago we had a mixed one too.

Like Graham says, the second is a Golden-headed Cisticola.

The Kite however is not a juvenile. The colour of the eyes do indicate an immature though. This is what a juvenile looks like.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
