G'day all,
             I had a flock of Crimson Rosellas of the subadelaidae race at
Dutchman's Stern Conservation Reserve in SA on Monday morning. Among the
birds was another rosella which was predominantly white but with a yellow
tinge to the breast and still having the red frontal band over the top of
the beak. I have some poor photos, but haven't the ability to upload yet.

If anyone is heading up that way it should be easy to spot again, and any
feedback on colour mutations would be handy as I know next to nothing about
it. I'm sure it wasn't albino as it didn't have the pink eyes, but it was
clearly the same species as the other birds it was with.

Cheers, Chris Watson
Alice Springs.
