Status: No accepted records.
Taxonomy: No subspecies recognized.
Comments: A singleton was photographed at a feeder in Lincoln, Lancaster Co 27 Jul 2021 by Richard Kern; it had been there since at least 15 Jul. This individual was certainly an escaped or released bird as this species is native to Australia and is commonly kept in captivity (Baptista et al. 2020).
