The only Swiss Parrot I saw was a Cockatiel, recognised by call before seen. It answered my whistle and sat on a tram cable in the middle of Zurich. I said g'day but generally avoid other Aussies when OS.
With the Regent Honeyeater being one of two that I am yet to see, I was stunned to find 3 males and a female in a display of stuffed birds in a tiny village on the Isle of Wight. The grandfather of the previous owner had made a brief visit to Australia. By the birds there he had gone via the Caribbean and south America.
