Rare bird seen after 100 years and filmed

Australian naturalist catches night parrot on film
An Australian naturalist has photographed a rare, nocturnal parrot that has not been caught alive for more than 100 years.Bird-watcher John Young also videoed and recorded the sound of the parrot - known as the Pezoporus occidentalis.But he said he would rather go to prison than reveal where he found the green and yellow bird.He does not want the remote desert site, in Lake Eyre basin in Queensland, over-run with other bird-watchers.
