is the Rosy Starling (stunning photo! yonks from anywhere?) a bird which
flew to Australia under its own power; a boat bird which arrived by boat; a
boat bird which jumped or was thrown (or even flew?) overboard from a boat
close to, or distant from, Australia; a 'genuine' refugee/migrant; an
escaped detainee (caged) bird (detained/caged before or after it arrived); a
queue jumper; or whatever?

How about enjoying the presence of a beautiful bird which some have been
privileged to see and a stunning photo which those people have, very kindly,
shared with us all?

And perhaps waiting to see whether, by any chance, there will be an
Australian irruption of this (according to the Internet) irruptive species

Or until someone on the plains where it was seen reports his/her missing
caged Rosy Starling which he happened to be carrying round in a ginormous
(non wing-fraying) cage ...

Does it matter?
