G'day all,
This may or not prove to be fruitful but I figured it was worth letting
people know. 
Last Friday night I was on Tony Delroy's Nightlife program on ABC local
radio. (Broadcast nationally.) As part of my time on air talking about all
things birdy, we have a call in from listeners. I had one call from a
Stephen from South Australia. He said that while he was not a huge birder,
his father was, and on returning from a trip to Central Australia (where
they had not seen Princess Parrot), they had stopped at a roadhouse some
150km north of Coober Pedy on the Stuart Hwy. I didn't quite catch the name
he mentioned but I am pretty sure it was Cadney Park Homestead. 
He said that there was a pair of Princess Parrots in a nearby tree. I
quizzed him as to whether he was sure, and he said his father was definite,
very excited and spent a couple of hours watching them. I also suggested
they may have been escapees but he was adamant they were wild birds. 
Who knows how genuine the sighting is- I wouldn't be travelling all that way
to twitch them myself- but if anyone is travelling through that area it
would be well worth checking out. The roadhouse is most definitely not off
limits to the public, so you could do worse than have a look.
Good luck, Sean Dooley
