Back in the 70's & 80's we were friendly with Herb and Pearl Rabig who owned
Cuddapan Station west of Windorah. Many Bird watchers and Naturalist will
remember Herb he was an excellent observer and recorder of all things
Natural History. He related to me various stories in relation to the night
parrot. He said he had flushed them from time to time on his property in the
50's& 60's, he always saw them when he was on horseback mustering. His
impression was that whenever he had seen them they were flushed from beneath
Grevillea juncafolia rather than Spinifex. His neighbour at that time was
Bill Scott manager of Tanbar Station, which adjoined Cuddapan. Bill told me
the same basic story as I recall.
