Hi all,
I was just posting a sighting on Eremaea of a presumed escapee Cockatiel that I 
saw in a reserve Coogee in Sydney.
I did a quick search out of interest of "Lost Cockatiels" and was rather

I wonder how many birds (budgies, parrots, etc.) are actually "lost" each year 
and which species would actually survive their escape.
Personally I am not a fan of having birds or animals in captivity.
Cheers,Charles Hunter
