Nice photo John. I was interested in your comment about it associating
with an Eastern Rosella. In my experience, hybrids have, when in company
with another rosella, mostly been seen in company with Crimson Rosellas.

Hybrids are a regular if not common sight when I do the COG quarterly
Woodland surveys at Red Hill and I have a personal theory that the
density of both Crimson and Eastern Rosellas in Canberra Nature Park
reserves is contributing to a fairly high occurrence of hybrids. I have
also recorded hybrids at my home in Kambah several times in recent

Seen at our house in Hughes on Sunday. it was slightly larger than an
Eastern, smaller than a Crimson and keeping company with an Eastern.
