Mid-summer downunder:  A gorgeous garden visitor - the Pale-Headed Rosella

Saw the Platycercus adscitus this morning ... one of my favourite garden visitors. It's such a delight to see these blue-bodied beauties.

What a beautiful bird.

They sure are Louise ... I just love their colours, especially that little splash or red underneath.

At first glance I thought it was a budgie! It is a lovely bird. You are so lucky to have such colourful visitors. What is the grass that appears to have blue beads on it?

Does look a lot like a budgie, Homebird ... but it is larger!

Beautiful bird. Nice to see them free. I have only seen them caged.

We're fortunate to see them a few times every year FF ... usually in pairs, although I couldn't see this one's mate.

Beautiful Bernieh...onto our favourites........

Homebird ... I'm not sure what that plant is with the tiny blue flowers. It's a weed that pops up everywhere here ... there's lots of it at the moment since the rain about a fortnight ago.

It must be a painters paradise down there. Great photo Bernie.

Lovely, reminds me of the budgie

Muddy ... if only I painted!
Lindak ... it does look a lot like a budgie but it's definitely larger than a budgie.

Don't worry John ... you should see my green, green eyes when I see photos of the gorgeous cottage gardens and beautiful green landscapes from over there!! If you have the time you should take a look at my Garden page ... there's around 70 photos of the birdlife we see around here ... it's a joy to see these creatures living their life in the wild.

Beautiful bird, Bernieh, how lucky you are to have such handsome visitors to your garden.

23 Jan, 2010

 

Thanks Busylizzy ... we do consider ourselves very lucky to be able to see birds like this just doing what comes naturally.

So sweet, lovely coloured birds they are. We have the western Rosella, but I haven't seen any since being here.

Maybe you'll spot them when it gets a bit warmer.
