Hi all,

The thread on Corellas reminded me that I saw what I am convinced was a Western 
Corella at Newry Island, Urunga (North Coast NSW) in 2004.  It was obviously a 
cage escapee and was with a group of Long-billed and Little Corellas.  It 
matched the illustration and description in the text in Slaters field guide and 
I later checked HANZAB.  Has anyone else observed these birds feral in eastern 
Australia?  Discussion with a local aviculturist indicated that there are at 
least a few in captivity in NSW.  Anyone know how common they are in captivity?

Is this revenge from WA for the eastern Corellas over there?
