Hi Birders,

John Leonard raised the question about PH Rosella distribution in NSW,

The distribution remains as previously stated(Morris, McGill & Holmes 1981 "Handlist of Birds IN NSW")

"Moderately common. Resident. Eggs Sep-Dec.
Northern Rivers and Tablelands, North-west Slope and Plain, Central West Plain and Upper Western. South to Tweed River, lower Mole River,Inverell, Gunnedah, Pilliga, Walgett and Bourke; West to Warrego River. Irregular visitor south to Richmond River and Warrumbungle Range.

During my trip to Burren Junction on 29/6/06 we saw a pair near the wheat silos and earlier in the month with Alan McBride, saw a pair at Ashford, north of Inverell. They are moderately common around Moree. Eastern Rosellas are however quite common around Narrabri and Warialda, and across to Inverell and up to the Queensland border.
