I recall Dick Schodde commenting, when showing COG members around the NWC - some years ago - that he had collected a pair of hybrids that were fertile.

Greetings. One of my neighbours has a hybrid Crimson/Eastern Rosella. He has seen it feeding an immature crimson.

My understanding is that hybrid rosellas are infertile. Grateful for any correction to this understanding, or other suggestions as to what may be going on here.

Best wishes - David
