A few of my favourite things..

Crimson Rosella

Platycercus elegans

There was a trail of white, tufty seeds left behind this rosella: the evidence of a breakfast well enjoyed!

  1. Is that bird just out and about in nature? Jeesh – it’s a common pet up here in Vancouver! If you’re just cruising around and get to view these creatures you’re pretty darn lucky!

    By the way – I really like the header you’re using on the site. It’s really cool lighting in that tunnel!

  3. Cole, I can’t imagine how our parrots would feel, living through your winters! Brrr!

    These are not so common as pets here: I’ve only seen wild ones. Budgies, sulphur crested cockatoos, and cockatiels are the most common of our natives that people keep as pets, though I don’t like to see birds caged. It makes me wonder how I’d cope if I had to spend a lifetime locked in a single room!

    Thanks for your comment, Cole.

    (I can’t take any credit for the header – it’s a wordpress default 😉 )

    Nivin, thanks 🙂
