These birds are Crimson Rosellas - Platycercus elegans - which means Elegant Broad-tail, which does seem to miss the point somewhat!
These birds are about 35 cm long and the male and females have very simulate plumages. The multi-coloured birds here are all juveniles of one sex or another. I wont make a fool of myself by trying to sex either the adult birds or the juvs!
These pictures were taken very close to the accommodation we stayed in at Wilsons Prom (yes this post is from there again!) and although there are clear instructions all over the place not to feed the birds it was clear they were looking for a meal. These chaps are cleaning up the mess left behind after cutting up some explosively crusty burger buns!
You may be able to tell that it was a little damp just before I took these shots!
Now it's over to you and that big blue button! Remember to visit as many WBWers as you can and to invite new bloggers to join in! Cheers SM
