Thanks Bill for forwarding these observations.

My guess is that food shortage rather than heat may have led to the demise of the young Crimson Rosellas. The adults could not meet the food demands of the growing young.

In general, to date I have seen very few young rosellas (either species) and also only very few young Galahs.
