The Eastern Rosella is a colourful broad-tailed parrot with distinctive cheek patches coloured according to location. On the east coast of Australia they are white-cheeked with red heads and red breast and a beautiful golden mantle of black feathers edged with yellow. They are fairly common inhabitants of open woodland and are often seen in my garden in pairs.
