If these birds are not escapes this is a rare sighting for SA. However,
reporting 5 days after the event doesn't give much chance for anyone else to
go confirm the sighting.

The following sighting has just been reported:

Area: SA

Date: Saturday, 11 July, 2015
Time: 12.30
Contact: Colin Theakstone
Location: Flagstaff Hill Golf Club Adelaide Sth Aust. (SA)

Superb Parrot (Polytelis swainsonii) (1) Call heard clearly (as an unknown
for the Club) and using a monocular found. Excellent view (of male) from

approx 40M away in another River Red gum but could not be found to view.
So far from region that would surely be aviary escapees???
