20. Eastern Rosella. Platycercus eximius eximius (Shaw, 1792) [W&M]
505 x 335 mm
Bauer painted a second, more animated picture of this parrot. In this painting the bird is clearly
enjoying something good to eat which is clasped in its claws. We do not know where Bauer saw
the bird but it was probably somewhere in New South Wales.
W&M : 318-9, 338
