Rosie’s sex scandal

Dramas in the rosella world recently. 

Rosie being fed by the "interloper"

Blurry photo of Rosie being fed by her new bloke

Rosie seems to have dumped her devoted(?) partner, BF, just as her kids are learning how to eat for themselves.  BF has been bringing up the clumsy, cheeping babies by himself, and Rosie has been seen out and about with…wait for it … a crimson rosella.  Rosie and BF are eastern rosellas, who are much smaller and with very different colouring.  Does anyone know if this is normal?

Yesterday, I caught the crimson feeding Rosie – apparently a courting ritual.  I managed to get only a very blurred photo – curse my unsteady hand on full zoom.
