Hi Greg,

I believe I had two sightings of Western Corellas at Narrabeen Lagoon on
Sydney's Northern Beaches sometime In 2003. The first was at the caravan
park where there was one feeding on the grass with Little Corellas, the
second was two birds at Pipeclay Point on the east side of the lagoon. Not
long before this I had seen Western Corellas in Western Aus.

I assumed they were escapees.

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?
