Young Rosellas

A couple of young crimson rosellas:
They will be crimson when they get their full adult feathers. For now they are a bit patchy. These ones seem to have left their parents, and are flying round with a group of juveniles. But for the last couple of weeks there has been a younger one flying around with an adult bird, and the youngster is constantly bouncing off our windows. With a loud "bang". I don't know if there is something wrong with it, of if rosellas are generally slow learners. But I think it has hit every window, some more than once. If there is something wrong with it, continuously flying into windows won't be helping.


  1. The bang of a bird hitting a window is a horrible sound, but they can't tell the window is there. Perhaps some predator silhouettes will deter it.

  2. We are experiencing a starling doing the same at my kitchen window.
