These medium sized colourful parrots often look like plastic toys strewn on grass. They have red head, neck and breast with white cheek patches. Yellowish-green backs with black specks, yellow green belly and tail base and bright blue wing and tail feathers.
Seen on open woodlands and grasslands through out South Eastern Australia. These were spotted in a grassed football oval.
It is interesting to note that they are seldom seen where there are tall trees, an area populated by the Crimson Rosella. In our local area, the two different Rosellas co-exist but one on grasslands and the other amongst tall trees.
