No.  They are all releasees.

Who says they have to be resident? Don't they just have to be here? You couldn't count a Hudsonian Godwit that was captive, or had escaped from captivity, but everyone assumes they've just flown here accidentally because that's the most likely thing.

Same for things like Galahs, which could be escapees. You just assume they aren't, because that's probably true. It's only with species that are likely to be escapees or free roaming pets that there's any need to investigate.

Can you count any waders that have been banded? They're all escapees, aren't they?
