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.
