World Bird Wednesday - Crimson Rosella

Its been a busy week here, so I thought I’d go with a simple crowd pleaser.
This is a male Crimson Rosella.  I took the picture when I visited O’Reillys Rainforest Lodge in the Lamington National Park in Queensland.
As with the last bird post, I think this hansom chap was used to having people around.
You can find more images of birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the page.  You can find my post from O’Reillys here.
Enjoy the birds.

Beautiful picture you show of the Crimson Rosella. I've had such a once many years ago ..... maybe a little shame to keep birds in cages. Wishing you a good Wednesday. Hanne Bente

What a smart bird - I read your blog on O'Reillys - I found it very interesting because I have never seen any of those birds - not sure about the Suburo drivers or the spiders not keen on either!- Jane UK

Oh what a beautiful sweetie this is. It has a cute, coy look in its eye. I think he knows how handsome he is. Great shot.
