Lunch time visitor: Eastern Rosella

Eastern Rosella in our garden

While we were having lunch today I noticed a beautiful Eastern Rosella feeding on some flowers in our garden. I wasn’t quick enough to get a new photograph, so I’ve used one I took some months ago.

This bird has been hanging out with our resident Ringneck Parrots. It is not a species normally found in this part of South Australia, so I am assuming it has escaped from someone’s aviary. It has been resident in our garden for most of the year. I much prefer it flying around than in an aviary anyway.

    What a beautiful bird! I wish we had colorful birds like that in Oregon. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi there Susan,

    Thanks for visiting my site. We are really blessed with many beautiful birds here in Australia. I have yet to experience the delight of birding in your country – I’m sure you have many fine birds too – eg hummingbirds.

    Hello Trevor,
    I found your blog when my friend sent me a link of Australian birds. I used to be able to see some eastern rosella in Canberra. They were really beautiful birds! I called them coward because they were very scared me when I tried to take a picture of them.
    I love your blog about Australian birds!
