Female Eclectus Parrot
Such a pretty little lady mate. Very well taken. Was this in the wild, or at a sanctuary or zoo?

These things are in New Guinea and Queensland, so very much the Melbourne Zoo, PJV.

The males are green, and into the 20th Century it was not realised they were the same species!

I have take=n some photos of one at the zoo myself. They are very unusual in their colouring differences. I first thought it was a crimson Rosella, until I got a closer look. This on looks looks like a young bird

Yep, we Victorians would think it's a Rosella - but the beak is wrong, for starters.
