Author's notes

I think these are the long billed corellas that were mixed with little corellas?

They may be hybrids, which are sometimes seen in the corella flocks. Ryu, Luke what do you think?
   23 Jun 2019
I'm inclined to agree hybrid, although it could almost be a full long-billed too. The closer bird it is paired with is probably a normal little.

I've added a fifth blurry photo of the one bird we thought may have been a long-billed corella (which I think is also the second photo in this post)?

I think it is most likely a Long-billed Corella as it appears to have a long bill and plenty of red on the face.

My current ID is:

Long-billed: images 1, 2 and 5 and rear bird in images 3 and 4.

Hybrid or Little: front bird in images 3 and 4.
   4 Aug 2019
I've confirmed as long-billed.
Front bird in pics 3 and 4 I think is a normal little
The others I still think could be hybrid or pure long-billed. For data purposes, it probably makes more sense to report as a normal long-billed as default in the absence of strong evidence either way for pure/hybrid.
