Wild Budgie Chase?

  A colleague of ours –- a novice birder, at best swears she saw a yellow parakeet at DeKorte Park Wednesday evening, and that a photographer took pictures of the same.
   She says, "It is def
initely not a goldfinch, but what do I know? It did have that kind of parakeet beak, a long tail & was bright yellow. Would this be a first?"
   If you are that photographer, or know of him (in his late 30s, early 40s, mid-height and thin, and wearing a red baseball cap), we sure would like to see a photo, just to confirm that our colleague isn't (completely) crazy and that she really did see an escaped parakeet.
