This beautiful bird was with a group a red Rosellas and Sulphar Crested Cockatoos at the feeding ground at Sassafras in the Dandenong Ranges.
Thank you to Larry Lingard-Davis for coming by and letting me know this is a juvenile and will eventually form the bright crimson colours like the older birds.
It sat on the fence and stared then flew to feed. All birds live in the area and are very alert to Tourist buses….At the feeding ground, a ranger hands out seed and they all come down and sit on shoulders arms and feed, great for photo’s.
