|The Green Rosella or Tasmanian Rosella (Platycercus caledonicus) is endemic to Tasmania and Bass Strait islands. At 37 cm (14.5 in) long it is the largest species of the Rosella genus. The male and female are generally similar in plumage, being predominantly black, green, and yellow in colour with a red band above the beak and blue cheeks; however, some females have red-orange colouration on the front of their necks. Its diet is composed of seeds, fruit, berries and flowers, as well as insects and insect larvae.|

you present us a nice shot of this beautiful australian Rosella. The sharpness could be better but the composition is good.

Such an awesome bird. I wish I can see them when I visit Tasmania. Are they common and easy to find?
