General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Small parrot. When flying over it's hard to discern the colour. This is because it's pale blue.
Easy to miss them being parrots until you hear them.
Brilliant yellow cheeks, red lores (the patch between the eye and the beak), green backs & purple-crown (as the name suggests).
