Tasmania!

It didn’t take me long to reach the decision that I just had to go to Tassie.  After all, some Australian parrots are not found breeding anywhere else in the entire continent.

The crew at Taz air were friendly and competent and my flight was fantastic! The climate in this region being affected by Antarctica was surprisingly cold.  The rocky topography and fog reminded me somewhat of Newfoundland in Canada.

While I saw my first Green Rosellas in a well planted Graveyard outside of Hobart my best looks at Greens were in this remote area of Melaleuca in the South West.   I was surprised at how very differently colored young birds were from adults.  The young birds often being very green while their parents were more yellow in color.
