Eastern Rosella (Platycercus eximius) are a beautiful and reasonably common parrot from south-eastern Australia. They inhabit open woodlands with a grassy understorey and agricultural landscapes with scattered trees. They avoid heathlands, tall forest and rainforest, but have adapted to urban environments in some coastal locations. They feed almost exclusively on seeds, usually on the ground, though sometimes they will feed on seeds still in trees and shrubs.
Despite their bright colours they are notoriously hard to see in the shifting filtered light of the woodlands they prefer. Additionally they are easily disturbed and it’s usually very difficult to get anywhere near them. I found a pair feeding on the ground near Yellow Rock Lookout at Springwood and this one allowed me close enough for a couple of shots before it too took off and flew over 100m before landing in a tree.

Thanks for looking

Hi Chris,

This bird is so incredible colourful. I think it deserves a more exotic background. On the other hand: the contrast between bird and background is interesting.
Great capture!


Hi Chris,

Beautiful capture and well done on the composition and details. Excellent work.

Hermoso periquito capturado con agradable POV y buen foco y DOF.
Los colores del plumaje y el contraste que produce sobre el suelo lleno de hojas es muy llamativo.
Buen encuadre y elección del recorte.
Saludos... Ricardo

Beautiful parrot captured with pleasant POV and good focus and DOF.
The colors of the plumage and the contrast that produces on the full ground of leaves are very showy.
Good framing and election of the cutting.
Greetings... Ricardo

That is beautiful, Chris. : )
It blows my mind that such incredibly gorgeous birds just happen to fly around in our neck of the world.
Excellent details and colors. Good POV and nice composition of the bird in its natural environment.
TFS. : )

Hi Chris

Very nice capture of this cheeky bird. I love their vibrant colours and constant chatter. I have them in my garden and you always know when they have arrived. Nice to view. :-)

Hi Chris
Excellent Shot. AS well as the stunning colours I like the light coming into the background. Well done

Hello Chris!
I can associate a parrot only with a cage, so it's funny for me just to read the phrase: "fairly common parrot". I generally prefer blurred background in bird shots, but in this case dry leaves work just perfectly creating non disturbing BG and letting subject's colors to stand out. Congratulations,
