Wild Bird Wednesday & SkyWatch - Eastern Rosellas & Flying Galahs


On my rare visits to the metropolis, my feet always come to rest 
on greensward and a bonus of Eastern Rosellas
which we do not get on the farm 50km to the east


they are so much more colourful than our local
Adelaide Rosellas below.


and just for fun and SkyWatch,
a few Galahs taking some exercise.

  2. Your Rosellas are something so different to me, Arija. And the Galahs remind me of our parrots. Have a wonderful day. Jo

  5. Hi Arija. I think this is one of my favourite coloured birds in Aus. ER. The Galahs are lovely in flight over the blue sky.

  14. The Rosellas are so pretty! I love Galahs. I remember camping at Quorn and waking to what seemed like hundreds of them in the trees around the campsite!

  15. You have such great birds (I'd certainly even settle for the less-colorful ones, which are quite colorful in my book)...and I am SO envious of your ability to get good flight shots -- that is just beautiful.

    Really beautiful !

  17. They are so colorful but surprising to see such a difference in their brilliance when so close. Wonder if it's the difference in their diets?
