Sorry about my previous response - I don't know what happened.
What I meant to appear was something like:
In Victoria the State is on to this species, and I suspect [hope] yours is
However, your Department of Primary Industries' pest website mentions only
one bird: the Common Myna. There is also a reference to the Australian Pest
Bird Network so maybe you could encourage them to follow SA and put the fact
sheet on their web site.
http://www.agric.wa.gov.au/PC_93140.html?s=737468776 That includes a
national Freecall number 1800 084 881
I've had a look at the websites of the other States and Territories. Most
don't refer to it at all. Victoria only mentions that the species is of
concern (it would be good if they had the fact sheet on their website too!).
And Tasmania has an extensive assessment (April 2011), concluding it as an
extreme risk there.
That includes a climate matching map that indicates that your area is less
vulnerable than mine.
