Eastern rosellas

Posted by Picasa

These beautiful eastern rosellas visited my garden today.  I am always amazed by the detail and colours on these birds.

I love crimson rosellas - we rarely see them here, just the rainbow lorikeets. Your new header looks lovely too, with some wonderful mangrove roots there. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hadn't been to your blog for a few days and had missed the episode with Carol and her horrible experience. Her embroidery looks fantastic, I agree with the comments, find another group, there must be some friendly ones out there. Cheers

How beautiful Dian!Lucky you having some bushland around to attract them.

Beautiful photos, Dian! I hope you don't mind me posting this comment, but these are actually Eastern Rosellas. The Crimson Rosellas are red and blue, with no yellow or green on them at all.
We get both kinds of rosellas here, but they stay high up in the trees, not like the cheeky lorikeets who squawk loudly every night for us to put some seed out for them!

Gina E, how silly of me. Thanks for noticing - even when I did the post I kept thinking it was not right - but was busy and didn't think enough about it.

I am grateful to you. We have those lorikeets in the garden a lot but never the Crimson Rosellas. We also have galahs and lots of other beautiful visitors.

Hi Dian, and thanks for sharing such an amazing scene. Our rosellas are such beautiful birds. I love them all. Sadly, we don't get this fellow here, but I've appliqued him many times. Great collage. Oh, and what an extremely beautiful header photo - truly amazing. Cheers.
