World Bird Wednesday - Eastern Rosella

I’ve been wanting to get some pictures of this bird for a while. This is an Eastern Rosella – or as it is called in our house a Tomato Sauce Rosella because of brand of sauce we have here.

This bird was one of a group that were much more cooperative than normal – in other words they did not just dash off into the distance as soon as humans approach.

This is not exactly a perfect example of this bird – the males on full plumage are a sight to see, but it’s still a good bird. The group of rosellas did not hang around for very long – I have not seen them for a few days, so they may have just been passing though.

You can find more birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday - at (http://pineriverreview.blogspot.com/)

You can find the latest post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the birds.

Nice photo of the "tomato sauce" bird! I've seen them plenty of times of course - but not since I have had a good camera :-(

. . . and it is the only decent brand of tomato sauce there is too. Great capture Strwart, I know just how wary they are.

What a brilliant bird, Stewart! I am envious - most of ours are much more discrete in their colors.
