Quarrelling Rosellas

The crimson rosellas have lots of juveniles out now. We see them in the garden on a regular basis. They love to quarrel over the feeder or any seed they spill on the ground. Below is an adult on the feeder and then two juveniles having a bit of a squabble over the feeder. They are probably the most ‘common’ bird we see in our garden. Rosellas are a part of the parrot family. We have a lot of eucalypts and other trees that produce seeds or nuts so the birds are attracted to these trees anyway. We use the feeder when I want to be able to get shots of the birds or to observe them more closely.
