Who Dat?

I've been hearing a different birdsong in amongst the usual sounds of sparrows, pigeons, finches and hooded crows and wondered for a few days what it was, The other day, however, we saw the interloper. A cockatiel, not indigenous to Cyprus but a native of Australia. Now, as Dame Edna advises us, there's a place for Australians and that's Australia, so what this fellow is doing here we don't know. It's a bit far to fly so we assume he's a pet who has escaped. If a lady cockatiel escapes and they get together there may be ructions in the local ecology. Here's a picture of the antipodean escapee, sitting on Uncle George's TV aerial.
