BLUE-FACED PARROT-FINCH: Erythrura trichroa 12 cm

  •  In Australia the Blue-faced Parrot-Finch is restricted to north Queensland.

  •  It is moderately common in partially fragmented rainforests in an arc between Gordonvale and Ravenshoe.  Other sites are more scattered.

  •  It feeds often on the seeds of Guinea Grass and Brachiaria at the forest edge.

  • Although colourful it is difficult to observe, flushing readily from grasses into nearby trees.

  • The metallic call is distinctive but is inaudible to many observers.
