Arwen, we tried some whistling and some pishing, but we didn't try calling it 
"Pete". It kept watching us but didn't come in.
It for sure wasn't the bird that escaped in the Cronulla area a couple of weeks 
ago (Tracey Newcombe reported), because it was a wild-type cockatiel (as 
opposed to the white Cronulla bird).
However, being a wild-type bird doesn't make it a wild bird I am afraid, Evan!

Will it answer to "Pete"? - there was an infamous escapee by that name from a 
house in Glebe a year or two ago I think. Might be a repeat offender :)
