    Where's the crimson?

    Such a complex species this one. This Crimson Rosella is actually a yellow version of the form known as the Adelaide Rosella, which had been split but then re-lumped. Then there's another one called Yellow Rosella! Don't know what happened yesterday, thought I'd posted this but must have...

    Making life difficult

    Really not the greatest of pictures, but the best I got of this Lifer that day, and didn't really improve on that at any time during my time in South Australia. This is a Crimson Rosella, a large group, with Adelaide being part. There's discussions on splitting them.... will it happen? They are...

    Aren't they stunning!!! I'd first seen one of these Crimson Rosellas the day before in the Springbrook mountains and here was another up at O'Reilly's and in a pretty tree too (well it was, I seem to have cut out all the lovely flowers..... ooops!

    The guest house cafe was well named, as there were a few Crimson Rosellas around. Here's just a pair of them. Beauties, aren't they. I remain confused about how to identify some of the subspecies!!!

    I get a bit lost with these Rosellas. Think I've got this right though. This is a Crimson Rosella, which at some point may be split off (and I think may already have been by some) as an Adelaide Rosella. It's yellow, where the Crimson is red, but not another potential split (Yellow Rosella)...
  14. Crimson


    When I caught up with Hans and Judy it was to find them surrounded by birds (of course!)!! First up I was to be re-acquainted with the gorgeous Crimson Rosella, that I'd first seen the previous day! I sure wasn't complaining about that LOL
  15. In the shrubbery

    In the shrubbery

    The entrance was lined on both sides with shrubs, and there were feeders and water dishes around so birds were flitting about everywhere. Of course, here was a new Lifer for me this stunning Crimson Rosella, they even spilled out onto the side of the road.

    this is the true form of the Crimson Rosella,as it has always been known.Nowadays the Adelaide and Yellow Rosella are treated as races of this species,losing birders two ticks(what a shame!)

    Have to share a back view of the Rosella as well, to show those lovely wing patterns.

    Next bird we saw, as we turned our backs on the picnic area and headed across some forest to the woodland slope boardwalk, was this Crimson Rosella. Well, actually, we first saw a King Parrot, but he managed to hide from the camera and then this Rosella turned up instead. So two lifer ticks, but...

    Took this photo on a recent trip to New Zealand. Originally from Australia these are the offspring of escaped or released cage birds that have formed breeding colonies in some parts of the country.
