This is actually highly likely to be a reliable report in my opinion.

Almost the top third of SA west of the Stuart Highway is Aboriginal land
(APY) and is very sparsely inhabited and infrequently travelled. Cadney Park
sits right on the edge of this with suitable habitat very close by and
contiguous through to areas further west where there have been recent
reliable reports (I saw them if that counts!) in the area from Nyapari
through to Wingellina (WA).

As for aviary escapes, the nearest caged birds I'm aware of are probably
Peter Severin's Princess Parrots at Curtin Springs in NT, and by the time
they made that flight I reckon they've earnt the right to be called 'wild'.
