I believe I have seen these rather odd coloured (generally pale) female
Red-rumped Parrots at various times. So there is more than one of them.

Perhaps the same bird I saw this afternoon while blitzing on Molonglo
Reach? My bird looked exactly the same as the bird in the photo and was
was also with a RRP. I wonder is it likely that it/they would travel
from Fadden Pines as far as the Molonglo River at Duntroon?
