    A beautiful & colourful male eastern rosella sitting in next door's Bangalow palm. Unfortunately, the dead frond in front of it had not yet been shed & does obscure the view of the rosells quite a bit. This has also made the bird's image less sharp, as the camera seems to be focussing on the dead frond. Grrr.

    There had also been a female there but she disappeared before I managed to grab my camera. They usually travel in pairs, with the female waiting for the male to give the all clear before she comes to feed. It is rare for us to see these beautiful, shy birds in our yard.

    This male eastern rosella looks to be nibbling on some food. They are mainly seed eaters.

    The female of this species is more easily identifiable, than those of other parrot species, as while they have the same coloration, as the male, they are slightly duller in colour, especially around the head.

    Male eastern rosella. The strong early morning sun leaches the colour from these birds on the side nearest the sun.
