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."

Joan, where is the pale-headed rosella from?

Comment by Peter Cordel on October 27, 2012 at 11:32am

Some blue jays having fun, and I was lucky enough to see them with a camera in hand. I do not know what they were saying nor why.

Very nice blue jay nestlings. Love it.

This is something that just happened in front of me, fortunately, I had the camera. NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me," was on the radio, but the bluejays are louder.

Mr. Peterdactyl - you have a wonderful yard to be able to capture all those birds with your camera. Just lovely.

You are very talented with photography. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us.

I'll have to look into getting that bird seed you speak of. I get mine from Wildbirds Unlimited.

The Pale-headed Rosella is a beautiful bird Joan. Thanks for the picture.

Joan, that is one fancy bird!

Robin headed back to the nest to feed Mom and the child(ren) Peter

I go cheap with suet and buy it 8-in-a-box at ACE hardware. The birds seem to love it. The box, on sale, is $5 and at its worse is $9-10. It is not fancy, but the birds that live here are just fine with it.
