Crimson Rosella

Crimson Rosella - Platycercus elegans


Pound Bend section of Warrandyte State Park:  2016:  November.  2017:  January.
East Doncaster:  2017:  January.
Templestowe:  2017:  January.
 Heritage Wetlands, Wonga Park:  2017:  January.


The two above are adults, with one, presumably the male, feeding the other, presumably the female, just a couple of minutes earlier than the image above was taken.

Young birds are green, with the one above just gaining adult plumage.  It's eating the gall on a eucalypt leaf.

This one was eating the green berries of a hawthorn.
