Hi All, 

By this I will kindly request for informations about the 
Pale-headed Rosella ( Platycercus adscitus ).

Among other how can you see the different between 
the " Blue-cheeked " Pale-headed Rosella and 
the " White-cheeked " Pale-headed Rosella  - as 
well as the " hybrid " ... !

Are there different races of the Pale-headed Rosella ?

And what is their distribution ranges ... ? 

Do the Pale-headed Rosella hybridises with the 
Eastern Rosella (  Platycercus eximius ) ... ?  

Are there any records of a mixed breeding pair 
- Pale-headed and Eastern Rosella ?         

At our recent visit at Cape York I had seen 
Pale-headed Rosella, which had some similar 
colours - especially the rumpcolour - as the 
Northern Rosella ( platycercus venustrus ),

I had been told that the Pale-headed Rosella at Cape York
is the socall : " Blue-cheeked " Pale-headed Rosella.  

And in southern Qeensland I saw " White-cheeked "
Pale-headed Rosella, but with blue cheeks  ... !
And furthermore it look for me that these Rosellas were 
larger and more robust than the Rosellas at Cape York.

I thanks you in advance for the informations about 
the Pale-headed Rosella.

You are most welcome to contact me directly.

Best wishes from Denmark,   Peter
