Yes Benj is quite right about the kakariki name and I thought of that later. In the same way that Crimson Finches are "Bloods", Turquoise Parrots are "Turquoisines", etc.  Though my avicultural knowledge is rather dated.

Jean, the escapee bird is usually called a yellow-fronted kakariki by bird keepers, who may not recognise the other names. The species occurs naturally in NZ and is not that expensive to buy here.
