• Northern Rosella

    26 days ago - By 10,000 Birds

    One of the birds that I failed to mention last week at Mary Pool rest area is the Northern Rosella. Northern Rosella are resident in the north of Australia, but not in large flocks. We rarely encounter more than one pair at any location. They are a species that can be well camouflaged despite their bright colours. If they are high up in foliage then you could easily miss out on observing them. Thankfully at Mary Pool rest area we encountered a pair on the ground feeding. We stopped where we were when we first encountered them and allowed them to continue feeding.
