Hi All,


   Thanks to Peter Ewin, Warren Thompson and Michael Ramsey for their
suggestion that the birds in Gundagai are hybrid Crimson x Yellow Rosella.

Michael mentioned the Forshaw book, and the last paragraph for the Crimson
Rosella states "The Crimson Rosella X Yellow Rosella hybrid is
indistinguishable from the Adelaide Rosella.  Now I know why they resembled
Adelaide Rosellas.

Thanks to b-a and the members who willingly share their knowledge, my
mystery has been solved. 

I wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and a great 2008 with lots of 

Happy birding
