I have been seeing an adult Bald Eagle flying over my neighborhood recently.  This is so exciting.  Ten years ago this would have been unlikely.

I found Pale-headed Rosella (Platycercus adscitus) browsing Facebook at this address:

"Bill Uglicoyote Davis

"Giving you the bird.
The Pale-headed Rosella (Platycercus adscitus), is a broad-tailed parrot of the genus Platycercus native to northeastern Australia. It is a moderate-size parrot with a pale yellow head, predominantly white cheeks, scalloped black and gold back and pale blue underparts. Two subspecies are recognised, although some authorities consider it to be conspecific with the Eastern Rosella of southeastern Australia.
Found in open woodland, it feeds on seeds and fruit. As with other rosellas, the Pale-headed Rosella nests in hollows of large trees. It readily adapts to aviculture and is sold as a cagebird."
