|Pale-headed Rosella Platycercus adscitus
The Pale-headed Rosella is distributed in north-east Australia from Cape York throughout most of eastern Queensland and into the north of New South Wales. It is found in savanna woodland, on trees along watercourses and on farmland.
|It is the palest headed Australian parrot with a white to yellowish head, white to lemon edges to black feathers on the back, pale blue underparts and red undertail coverts. This bird shows very little of the yellow wash which indicates that it is of the more northerly nominate race. The sub-species P. a. palliceps found south of Innisfail shows much more yellow.|
