This sounds like a superb parrot female to me.  They are commonly kept in aviaries and often escape too.  I work with WIRES and we have picked up many aviary escapes, including superb and princess parrots, as well as the more common galahs, cockatiel sand sulphur-crested cockatoos.  Most birds are never claimed by their owners.  I suspect some are held illegally.  At the moment I have 2 Major Mitchells and a Red-tailed Black-cockatoo, picked up in western Sydney and not, as yet, claimed.  All are tame birds.
