CRIMSON ROSELLA                                         
Platycercus elegans 33 cm

         The Crimson Rosella is endemic to forests and woodlands of eastern Australia.

         In north Queensland it is a scarce resident of upland rainforests.  Unlike southern populations, there is no distinctive immature plumage.

         Food is mainly seeds, obtained from a great variety of plants, including herbs and tall trees.

         Like other rosellas, adults form permanent pairs that maintain close contact all year.  These pairs and their young may form small groups.

    The loudest call is a brassy ‘kweek kweek’.

    It is easiest to observe while feeding on the ground in open areas.

         Small flocks are observed regularly round Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge .
