Chris Watson has written a fine article about the Night Parrot discovery by
John Young, and raises some very important issues. It's long but something
we should all read.

I initially supported the idea of keeping the location of John's finding
secret, and not releasing the call. But I find Chris's arguments
convincing. Like most others, I applaud the astounding work John Young has
done so far, but I think we need to bring a broader range of expertise -
and opinions - to the table to plan for the Night Parrot's future, not for
our lifetimes, but for the next few generations.

Thanks to Greg Roberts and Alan McBride for posting about the article on
