Pale Headed Rosella taken at the Boondall Wetlands by 

The Pale-headed Rosella is a medium-sized, broad-tailed parrot, with a pale head and all white, or blue and white cheek patches. The underbelly is mainly blue, with red under the tail. The back is yellow with dark flecks. The female is similar, though slightly duller, with an off-white underwing stripe. There is marked geographical variation, with differences in the depth of colour and the facial patch. This is a noisy and conspicuous parrot, except when feeding.

I specialise in Photographing birds in their natural environment. To date I have photographed over 450 Australian species. If you like to view great bird shots please visit my site. I also like to photograph Landscape scenes but this is my second choice. I love nature and love to see and capture it when it is living free.
