"Who's pretty boy?"

We are blessed with a big population of Rosellas here in the highlands. Did you know that their colours are actually affected by the climate, Deakin University has spoken out about how habitat background and climate are major drives of the colour variation in Rosellas. 

It is to do with ' Gloger's Rule', Lambert Gloger found that birds tend to be more darkly pigmentated in humid habitats. 

As Australia gets more dry and hotter we might see our Rosellas that are crimson turn yellow.
