[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I set up the camera and sat down and relaxed while I waited for the Rosellas to come into my yard, they stayed in a tree for ages before having the confidence to drop to the ground and eat seed from the dish I had put out. There is a dove in the background, it was not as interested in the seed.

"The Pale-headed Rosella is a medium-sized, broad-tailed parrot, with a pale head and all white, or blue and white cheek patches. The underbelly is mainly blue, with red under the tail. The back is yellow with dark flecks. The female is similar, though slightly duller, with an off-white underwing stripe. There is marked geographical variation, with differences in the depth of colour and the facial patch." Ref: http://www.chickcam.com.au/rosella.htm
