I sent this yesterday to COG and it apparently didn’t go through – maybe the pictures were too big – if so, my apologies. I have made the smaller. The message is the same:
We had this very pretty bird in our garden this afternoon and think it is a hybrid Eastern/crimson rosella. Unfortunately, as Easterns seem to be, this one was very flighty and didn’t stay around for very long at all. One photo is taken through the flyscreen  and is not as clear as it should be. I have seen this bird before, recently, in the company of a crimson rosella.
On another note, it’s really nice to see the Gang-gangs back – three males and three females yesterday. They have been here only recently, and in much fewer numbers.......
