Wow! It’s a Crimson Rosella!

Crimson Rosella

Wow! What a stunner!

It’s a beautiful Crimson Rosella, perched in an Australian native tree.

The information brochure about the local park where I spotted this feathered beauty states that they are common, but this has not been my experience.

Yet the fact that I see them only rarely adds to my delight at having the camera on hand. And this bird is most obliging!

    You’ve pictured some beautiful birds but this one’s a stunner. Such vibrant colouring. As per the catch phrase on a popular TV show a few years ago…..Want One !

    Crimson rosellas are more common a bit farther south, especially in the Illawarra region and up on the mountains. When we go back there (we grew up in the Illawarra) and go for a drive in the bush, we usually see them.
    They don’t come this far north (Lake Macquarie), but we do have the lovely but shy Eastern rosellas.

      We also have Eastern Rosellas, and officially they’re ‘common’ in our local bushland park, yet I’ve never seen one. Perhaps they like to keep themselves hidden.
