As the two budgies as they flew almost over my head, I saw no sign of
missing or damaged feathers in either their wings or tails.  Captive
birds often have damage to their tails when they get caught in the
cage wires e.g. "notches" where sections of the tail feather are bent.
The colouring was the normal wild type, with no obvious signs of
aberrant plumage e.g. white feathers.

Roger's photos back up my impressions, so I'm comfortable ticking them
on my ACT list as wild budgies.
