Pale-headed Rosella

Location: Carnarvon Gorge, Central Qld


These were a delight to see

Birds in Backyards fact sheet on the Pale-headed Rosella is here


not quite as flamboyant as their cousins in N.S.W.  A pair of  Eastern Rosellas, at home.

The Pale-headed Rosella has such an unusual combination of colours. My goodness you have so many different parrots in your part of the world Carole.

Photo 3 is my favorite.
I wish you a very nice weekend.

Hello Carole, your Pale-headed Rosella is a beautiful bird. I love your colorful Eastern Rosellas too. Great sighting and lovely. Thanks for linking up with my critter party. Have a happy weekend!

So colourful and some really great pictures you share.

Adrienne W said...

We have them too, but as you probably know, they are very shy and often heard before you actually see them.
I think they are more beautiful than their red cousins :)

Delightful captures Carole. I love the pale yellow with that steel blue and the little smidgen of red.
