tūī vs rosella

It’s spring again! And so our cherry tree in blossom is host to a now-traditional tussle between the tūī and all comers.

Today: ding ding! it’s a pair of Rosellas!

In a flowering cherry in blossom a tūī menaces a pair of colourful parrots (rosella).

(Apologies for the quality of the photo - it was taken through our winter-crudded windows.)

The tūī chased the rosella about a bit but it didn’t really go all that well in the end as the pursuer became the pursued and was chased off in turn. And the rosella went back to snacking on the blossom.

Round One: rosella!
