It may not have been doing anything in a rosemary bush. It looks fairly crumpled. It could have been dropped there by a predator or passing person or maybe fallen dead from a tree above. This week there was a Crimson Rosella dead on the path in front of my home, under the power line. I guess collision with the power line is a likely cause. But in such cases there are many possibilities.

Thanks everyone for the ID of the parrot. I wonder what it was doing in a rosemary bush...
