Some pics of the Rosella

Here are some pictures of the probable Eastern Rosella that we found on Sandy Hook during the World Series of Birding. Thanks to Bob Devlin for the pics.

Is that an escaped bird of some sort?-Very Cool indeed!

Larry,

Yep, it was for sure an escaped bird. It's probably quite an expensive pet, I would think.

Your ID is correct. They are quite common in SE Australia but as you say it is probably someone's very expensive pet gone AWOL.
