Go into nearly any kitchen in Australia and you will no doubt find a Rosella -whether that be on a soup, biscuit tin or bottle of sauce. Outside the kitchen, Australia is home to many species of vibrantly coloured rosella, including Crimson, Eastern, Western, Northern, Pale-headed, and Green Rosellas. 

 So, there is probably one living near you!

There are generally three types of cheek colouring: white, yellow and blue. The Northern, Pale-headed and Eastern Rosellas have white cheeks, the Western Rosellas have yellow cheeks, and the Green and Crimson have blue cheek patches.

A bushfire has let its embers fall
onto your back
they cling there still red and black
but when the light is slanting
low on each feather of your stretched out wing
there shines a narrow rim of green the bush
begins again and grows in flight
your breast curves smooth as blood
and on your cheek beneath each eye you hold
a patch of powdered blue
in case towards the ending of your days
you must occupy a smaller space
and deep in the hollow of an enclosing trunk
that patch of ice clear sky will burn
and you will soar again and dive and twist away
to leave only that pure note that cracks
a clear morning between mountain trees.
