What are the odds of there being an escaped Indian ringneck and an escaped
Alexandrine parrot in the same area  at the same time?  Perhaps the
Alexandrine is a wild feral female, who told to the Male Indian Ringneck to
escape and run away with her?  Or maybe there's a colony nearby?
The odds are pretty high I'm afraid.

See if "petsearch" is in your city. If they are then give them a call. They
may have the bird listed.

If you can catch the bird that would be a good thing - then you are faced
with the problem of re-homing however. Ringnecks are generally better aviary
birds than companion animals, although with a great deal of work some birds
may make good companion birds.

If you do catch the bird then the local bird clubs may also be able to
assist you with re-homing.

In an ideal world the various exotic Ringnecks are not  birds that would be
in Australia.
