Author's notes

This one was much more Eastern-like than other Hybrids I have seen, but ID is based on the blue tinge to the back of the cheeks and how far up the blue comes up on the shoulders, and there is slightly more red down the front. Chris- do you agree, or is it a normal eastern?

Ryu, I agree a difficult one but I would go with Eastern Rosella. The red down the front can be variable and a feature I use to id individuals in my back garden. Chris
