Could be my favourite bird.
yeah have to agree ,theres a heap going in at Granville harbour Down hereI hate wind farms , the conara virus destroying the landscape.
We had quite a few of the Easter/Crimson combos drop in over the 22 years we lived in the bush. They were even more pronounced with the Eastern's yellow than the one in your pic with yellow green body and the crimson on the wings. I'd guess it's a rarity but doe's happen.This Rosella has been hanging around my yard for a while & I finally managed to get a few photos of it. Sent the pics of to Birdlife Australia for identification. Turns out that it is a Crimson/Eastern Rosella hybrid. It`s mate is an Eastern Rosella. Both are the same size.
Seems that this is a rare occurrence outside of Avery breeding. View attachment 67650
The wing tips look osprey but the pics don’t give a lot to work with.Can anyone I`d this raptor, I think it`s one of the hawks.
I was watching it flying around then it settled in one of the big gums across the road so I grabbed the camera.
By the time I got back it had been ejected by the 2 very pissed off magpies that live there.
I only had a short len`s on at the time. View attachment 70772 View attachment 70773 View attachment 70774
