Australian Tropical Birds

BLUE-FACED PARROT-FINCH
Erythrura trichroa 12 cm

         In Australia the Blue-faced Parrot-Finch is restricted to north Queensland.

         It is moderately common in partially fragmented rainforests in an arc between Gordonvale and Ravenshoe.  Other sites are more scattered.

         It feeds often on the seeds of Guinea Grass and Brachiaria at the forest edge.

         Although colourful it is difficult to observe, flushing readily from grasses into nearby trees.

         The metallic call is distinctive but is inaudible to many observers.
