Hi all

At the risk of this being the wrong forum for this question, I was hoping
someone might be familiar with the Australian parrot species typically kept
and bred in captivity by aviculturalists/parrot fanciers.  I ask in order
to clarify the identification of a parrot some relatives saw in their back
yard (in Mackay, Qld) which is most probably an aviary escapee.  They have
ID'd it as an Orange bellied parrot, but we thought this seemed pretty
unlikely.  Any thoughts?  Mulga Parrot??  Scarlet Chested??
