Pale-headed Rosella: Platycercus adscitus
A pretty parrot with a strange colour combination of a blue body and pale yellow head.
There is red and green on the rump and blue on the underbelly; this blue is also on the face of Cape York individuals of this species, thus sometimes giving rise to the second common name of 'Blue-cheeked Rosella' (not to be confused with the 'Blue-cheeked Rosella' group).
