A Recent Specimen of the Night Parrot Geopsittacus occidentalis
94(1) 37 - 40
Until October 1990, the Night Parrot of Australia was known from only 22 specimens, all but one from last century. Despite regular reports, there was no supporting evidence. We found a road-killed specimen near the edge of the species' known distribution. This bird, an adult, possibly male, confirms the continued existence of this species.
