Crimson Rosella

Platycercus elegans


This very cheeky rosella and its buddy came to our balcony at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat on the border of Lamington National Park. They have a feeding area at this retreat which is popular with Crimson Rosellas and King Parrots, so I suspect the birds have become rather emboldened, and if there's no one in the feeding area they'll try the rooms instead! We did also see quite a lot of these birds feeding naturally in the bush around the retreat.
