 Hi Netters,
            Tony Palliser asked "What unusual Australia birds have you seen
in captivity and where?".
            While in Oslo, Norway in 1974 a pet shop had Gouldian Finches in
a heated cage. There were approx 20. I wasn't a birdwatcher then and as I
had Gouldian Finches in 1974 myself, which bred 150 pair a year, I didn't
think it was unusual.

All the Best
