The huge flocks of screeching Corellas that fly over the Bellarine coastline provides the inspiration for this piece. Corellas fly in large numbers and land to roost in the pines all along the Bellarine coast. When they settle down the sound that is left is the loud crunching noise when their hard beaks to crunch down on pine cones. Linda was particularly taken by the beauty of the bird, their dramatic white contrast on their oval bodies against the tangled branches and dark mass of the pine bark. They resemble candles when there are hundreds of them roosting. Linda chose to paint the Italian Stone Pine trees tan in the Queenscliff waterfront park. She has used a dramatic technique on the bark, a tessellated mix of pink and black. The scene combines the views of Corio Bay, the You Yangs and the Bellarine Peninsula.
