Red, green, blue

I ventured stealthily out to the verandah yesterday afternoon … in the hope that there might be something of interest at the bird bath.

The reward was in the form of a family of Crimson Rosellas, a pair of crimson and blue adults and an immature bird with its beautiful olive-green plumage.

  1. We have quite a few Crimson Rosellas on our property and are seen most days feeding on the grass around our house all year. We also get visits from King Parrots, Galahs, Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos, Gang Gang Cockatoos and occasionally Eastern Rosellas venture up our hill but are mainly seen lower down. They certainly bring a great splash of colour to our property.

  2. The detail and colour in your the third pic will make me appreciate anew the colouring of the immatures. I usually just dismiss them as messy looking. As always great images.

    Absolutely beautiful birds, thanks
