what’s the odds? Well how would anyone know? I
would suggest (60 / 40, 70 /30) more likely an escaped pet………
Am I correct? No way of knowing! They are one of the most commonly kept pet
birds. If it was a flock, I would suggest wild birds. But one, no.

Subject: [Birding-Aus] Cockatiel in Como
Looked out my window at 6.15 this morning (Como on the
Woronora River, Southern Sydney, 33,59,59S, 151,03,54E) and saw what I’m
fairly sure was a cockatiel going past.
Assuming my id is correct, what’s the odds this was a
drought refugee v. an aviary escapee?
