The Rosella Recorder
More nesting sites are now available for the many crimson rosella pairs which favour this region to raise their young.
Nesting boxes have been set up for crimson rosellas in the Adaminaby, Old Adaminaby and Anglers Reach district.
The nesting boxes are at the local school, private homes and other locations. Residents and visitors can observe and enjoy our rosella families.Each box owner keeps a diary of what's happening with the rosella family that moves into their box.

To set up a nesting box for rosellas at your own home or workplace, simply email LECA to order a box or ask for plans to build your own.
If you like to DIY, it's important to follow specific guidelines for crimson rosella nest box design. The birds are fussy about the size and shape of their nesting sites. A wrongly designed nesting box might attract other birds, or a family of possums. Worse, it could be raided by predators able to reach into the box.
You can publish excerpts from your own nesting box diary and read about other rosella families' experiences on Nest Box Tales.
