This parrot was introduced to New Zealand from south eastern Australia early in the 1900's.
It has breed very successfully in the North Island and has become quite a pest to grain farmers and in orchards - both commercial and home ones. They have created a lot of damage in my orchard from time to time, and although I love to see the colourful noisy groups flying around, I wish they would keep well clear of my trees.
I spotted this Rosella on a foggy morning walk on the farm. They are usually too fast for me to capture, but this one was happy to pose for a minute - and then he was off.
