What’s That? A Crimson Rosella

25 May

As a child, I lived near the city. Although there was quite a large park nearby, never once did I see a parrot of any species flying free.

How different life is now! Living close to a large bushland area, parrots of many species have become an (almost) everyday sight.

Crimson Rosellas and King Parrots each have lots of beautiful red feathers, but seem to be less common (or much shyer) than the Rainbow Lorikeets, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Galahs. Therefore it’s quite a treat to spot them.

Here’s a shot of a Crimson Rosella perched in a tree in the park surrounding the river baths where I swim.

    Uh oh, he looks a bit taken aback to find himself the centre of someones attention and maybe a little put out to find someone in his territory .

      Perhaps he has spotted the camera pointed in his direction. Or maybe he sees or hears other birds. Who knows?
