Hi Tony & all Birders
Has there been any reported sightings of the Crimson Rosella in and around
the Adelaide foothills?
On three occasions over the last 6 weeks or so I have seen what would
appear to be one in the trees in our garden. On two of the three sightings
he (?) was with an Adelaide Rosella, possibly a female - duller mustard
coloured head and breast feathers and slightly smaller. We do get the male
Adelaide Rosellas as well, they are in the main a washed red through the
chest and neck areas, noticeably different to the other bird.
