Spring sunshine at last at Treetops Wye River

Rosellas entertain the guests on the balcony at Treetops Wye River.

This morning the sun was awash on the balcony at Treetops and the Crimson Rosellas out in force. They are one of our favorite birds with the beautiful blue and reds. I thought I’d look them up on Wikipedia and found they are one of eight species of colorful Australian parrots of the broad-tailed variety. Yes, those tails are definitely broad, sometimes the tail seems as wide as the body. What Wikipedia doesn’t tell us though, is that these guys can be the greatest goons, jumping and diving and squabbling over the seeds. We (and our guests) watch them for hours.
