I've been thinking about this since I heard about the curious hopping
behaviour seen in John's video (still waiting to see it myself of course!).
The only accepted Night Parrot sighting by BARC is the Minga Well '05
birds, case summary here:

Interestingly, the observers report the birds "running a short distance"
towards the water after landing. Not hopping. Thoughts anyone? Maybe
there's a Western "Running" Night Parrot and an Easter "Hopping" Night
Parrot! (typo intended)
