A Sight for Sore Eyes: A Crimson Rosella

A sights for sore eyes: a Crimson Rosella.

These strikingly-coloured birds brighten my day.

I see them far less frequently than their beautiful relatives, the Rainbow Lorikeets, and whenever I do their presence cheers me.

Parrots are such interesting creatures.

What better way to observe them than in their natural environment?

    I agree. That’s where they belong. What a stunning photo. Good job capturing this amazing creature in a photo! I’ve never even heard of this bird before.

    What a stunner. You’re right about seeing them in their natural environment though but having said that I love to have budgies indoors- not in cages ( except to sleep and eat) of course as their companionship is great.

      I love to see them where they belong. I have a couple of budgies but unfortunately they need to be caged outdoors.

    No cages! No fences!
    No sage’s pretenses.

    Just parrot this fine bird;
    find a beauty; eat your word.

    Take a picture! Be absurd!
    And may your life n’er be blurred!

    Uncle Tree
    Thanks to Margaret for this morning’s 🙂

      🙂 Australia has many beautiful parrots. I’m glad you liked this one. Thanks for visiting my blog. 🙂

        I’ve noticed that. I have a friend (A few, actually) that live in Australia, and Tony is always sharing the most beautiful photos and videos. I could do without the bats though. 🙂
