For those mad twitchers out there.....

 

"The fat, ground-dwelling bird is so elusive it was once thought to be extinct, and the photos could be the first proof of a living night parrot in more than 100 years...."

Night parrot seems like an oxymoron.  What else is out there or under there (as in ocean) that we don't know about?  Lots!

So exciting to hear things like this! Doesn't it look a bit like a green colored night jar?
