A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.

A paler shade of white cheeks.

This is a pair of Pale Headed White-Cheeked Rosellas who live somewhere in the trees around our property. They’re the local version of the White-Cheeked Rosella family, without the red head of their southern relatives made famous as the brand image for Rosella tomato sauce and tinned foods, (although note the bright red, um, bums). They’re rather timid little critters who take off whenever any other birds (even doves) arrive at the feeder, so it was nice to see them getting an uninterrupted chance at some seed this morning. More about them here.
