Rosella Eating Weed Seeds  (•▽•)   ”’❧

The Eastern Rosella (Platycercus eximius) did not stay for as long as I’d hoped. Thought it was a brightly coloured potato chip bag, at first, suspended in a bush, quite some distance away. I like parrots coming in all comic book colours. There are quite a few types of parrots out this way, but I’m yet to capture the rarer types on video. What was this rosella eating? Sow thistle seeds; or some type of wild amaranth?

Eastern Rosella Parrot Chatting (⌒▽⌒)

Eastern Rosella Parrot Chatting  (⌒▽⌒)

The Eastern Rosella (Platycercus eximius) was up high in the hedge, this morning. It’s mate was in a nearby pecan tree. I do like parrots coming in all comic book colours. There are quite a few types of parrots out this way, but I’m yet to capture the rarer types on video. I just wish they weren’t so wild and shy–well, at least not when I am trying to photograph them.

Hunting for Parrots (⌒▽⌒)❧

Hunting for Parrots  (⌒▽⌒)❧

Here I am hunting for parrots to film. The Eastern Rosella (Platycercus eximius) did not stay for as long as I’d hoped. But I caught the Indian Ringneck Parrot (Psittacula krameri) up high on a gumtree branch. Of course, the Galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla) were about, too. (If you run the video slowly, you can see that the Indian Ringneck Parrot is actually driven out of the tree by a Galah.) Anyhow, I like parrots coming in all comic book colours. There are quite a few types of parrots out this way, but it’s mainly galahs and cockatoos that come to visit me.
