Either the NSW Police don’t know their bird species and can’t spell, or it is another word altogether with a completely different meaning. The bird as we know it has a double “t” in its spelling.

What did the beautiful feisty little sittella ever do to deserve this slur on its character????


“detectives from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad (MEOCS) formed Strike Force Sitella to investigate a number of shootings in Sydney during the second half of 2013”


I guess they are Varied, so there may be some “black sheep” in the family.
