Yes - they certainly do.  I hope that, among other things, something we will
learn from the Atlas project is an update on the population distribution of
feral or introduced birds.  In fact, ANY bird seen in the wild, however
obviously an escape, can and should be recorded for the Atlas; the only ones
you do not atlas (yes - I still have a little trouble using atlas as a verb)
are those evidently in captivity.

Cheers,  Hugo.
