Thanks for the report, John. I’ll listen out for them the next time I’m atlassing in the area. Doubtful that they are truly wild birds though—no evidence that there have been persisting wild populations in the area for a long time now. Occasional reports all assumed to be released game birds. Always nice to hear though!
