G'day all,
More info ! I was wrong !!
The bird was named after the suburb, which was named after G.Rose esq.
I quote from J.D.Macdonald's "Australian Birds, by Common Name, 1987"
From Rose-Hill ... where early colonists named local bird rose-hill parakeet (and other popular names) adopted by Gould
... These other names included rose-hill, rose-hiller, rose-hill parakeet, rose-hill parrot.
So, G.Rose esq. by default had a bird named after him.
Regards from
Bob Forsyth
Mount Isa, NW Qld.
