obviously an aviary escapee but was happily flying from tree to tree.

I have confirmed as Lilian's Lovebird based on several key factors:

The bird is clearly an escapee. Rosy-faced Lovebird has been recorded as an escapee in Canberra but not that species (you can compare with photos) . I know that Lilian's Lovebird has been sold in aviaries in Australia (not sure about Fischer's) and I also know someone in the Canberra region with Lilian's Lovebirds in their aviary. Also by looking at photos and comparing the two species I concluded Lilian's Lovebird more likely due to colouration.

I will leave for other bird moderators to comment.

Would very much appreciate any reports of two or more birds - don't want this to become a pest species
