Rosella hybrids are relatively common.  I have a pair of Eastern Rosella x Pale-headed Rosella hybrids around my area at the moment. 
At one time in the 60s, in one day in the same location, two of us saw Crimson Rosellas, Pale-headed Rosellas and Eastern Rosellas with PH x Eastern, PH x Crimson and Eastern x Crimson hybrids.  Unfortunately, the area involved is now covered in houses.  If you include juvenile Crimsons (which often cause problems with ID) we had lots of fun trying to separate 7 different looking rosellas.
