Hi David. Their name comes from the fact that they are usually found in a group of 12 or sometimes more, and are extremely supportive of each other. Like the Twelve Apostles.
Their behaviour is fabulous to watch. They interact all the time, chattering and grooming, and huddle together when perching. It is hilarious to observe them perching as they cuddle very closely together in a line, and if one jumps off,another jumps on to take its place. Found mainly in our inland areas.
