Edward Lear - 'Paleheaded Parrakeet' (Platycercus palliceps) -1831.

Plate 19, 'Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots'


Hey Every Birdie,
here we see a beautifull Platycercus adscitus palliceps (pale-headed Rosella Parakeet) which is a sub-species of the P. a. adscitus (blue-cheeked Rosella Parakeet)

The nominate sub-species being very similar but displaying a much darker blue abdomen, breast & lower part of cheeks while palliceps display white cheeks, pale-blue (whitish-blue) abdomen & troath.

Best regards,
St??phane aka Tintin,
Ruby Eyes Aviary.
