Today in suburban bushland in Canberra I observed a pair of Crimson Rosellas inspecting a nesting hollow. What was interesting was that the female (I think) was still in green, immature plumage. Of course this pair aren't necessarily going to breed this year, but it suggests that these Rosellas are potentially able to breed at one year.
