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.

Hi all

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?
