The bill colour indicates it is a young bird, adults have bone coloured mandibles. The bird is very strongly Eastern Rosella and doesn't appear to have to much Crimson Rosella in it, if any at all. The cheeks don't appear to have the blue tinge of Crimson Rosella.



                         A pair of Rosellas in our garden this evening in Macgregor, one an adult Crimson Rosella the other could be a hybrid Eastern Rosella, the body shape looks more like a Crimson but the bill is a colour I haven’t seen before.
