I've seen a third escapee cockatiel along the Yarra bike path.  This on
is different again, with a grey mottled back and wings and bright yellow
rump and tail.  I saw it on the way in yesterday and on the way home as

Who's letting all their cockatiels go?

(PS I've still never seen one in the wild, despite Russell's efforts...)
