A lots of fuss among the guides about this bird as it is shy and hard to see. But I and several others managed to see it. In the darkness of the forest floor.

It was a pleasure to see this bird. It stayed for about 10 minutes "picking flowers". Such a beautiful bird. A bird often used as pets even if it is not recommended. They tend to stay wild. 

Stewart made a comment on this Rosella before the meme was posted. He says: "Wonderful bird - we call them "Tomato Sauce Rosellas" because they appear in the logo of an iconic Australian product!"
