Science by Email | Night parrots, Ghost photos

Science by Email | Night parrots, Ghost photos: "DNA analysis of feathers confirms a recent sighting of the elusive night parrot. One of Australia’s rarest birds, this sighting is the first time a night parrot has been caught on camera.

The last live night parrot was caught more than 100 years ago. Since then, only dead specimens have been collected and they are few and far between. In the recent past, the species was so rarely encountered by humans that some people thought it was extinct."
