I wasn't there but I'm confident he knows the
difference. Besides it was a pair of them, unlikely for escaped birds. He has
50+ years experience as a bird observer and this built on that he is the son of
one of Australia's leading birdos (who died several years ago, which is why I
put that bit in my note). I have had two separate occurrences of one Rose-ringed
Parakeet at my house in Kambah. Both were endorsed by COG's RP. That is
irrelevant to another sighting of other birds on other years.
