I was having lunch on the weekend when I heard the silver whistle of Eastern Rosellas (Platycercus eximius) in the tress just outside the kitchen window. There were two birds there eating the seeds of the Silver birch trees the grow between us and out next door neighbours.
The birds were very settled, but there was no way for me to photograph them other than through our winter-dirty window. One must push on in these circumstances.
So, these pictures are not as sharp as I would like them - but they were the highlight of a lock-down weekend.
It may have been a better idea if this parrot had been called the South Eastern Parrot, as that more accurately describes its distribution. I have seen them in my garden more often in the past few weeks than ever before - maybe the appreciate the reduction in bustle on the streets.
