"Rosella Parrots" Native Fauna Tip by hennanights

Native Fauna, Adelaide: 8 reviews and 18 photos


Favorite thing: Australia has 54 species of parrots. The Eastern Rosella parrots are found throughout South Australia. They travel in small groups. Its is not known whether the birds are native to the area or whether they have appeared through release. Quite often they are spotted while noisily, with a loud chirps, fly from tree to tree but every now and then you will spot them on the ground foraging for seeds. They supplement their diet with fruit stolen from backyard orchards. The birds are quite playful and you can often hear them chirping to each other. Males have longer bills than females.
