A moderate sized parrot with a pale cream head and blue, yellow and black scalloped pluamage and a red rump. It feeds on many types of native seeds, tree fruits and seeds. Like other rosella species they nest in tree hollows.
A native to eastern Australia usually found in open forests, woodlands, forest edges and clearings, as well as urban parks and gardens.
This bird was spotted in bushland near my house in QLD. They are very shy and quick birds and I had to trek through the bush quite a bit to snap a picture, as you can see she is keeping a very good eye on me.
