I attended John Young's presentation on Night Parrots in Brisbane which was 
amazing to see. It seemed indisputable and I walked away having witnessed a 
part of birding history. 
However, I have just been alerted by UK birding friends to discussions taking 
place on Birdforum in the UK where there are claiming parts of the photos are 
cloned and they are casting huge doubts over the record. 
Some of it can be found here: 
but you have to join bird forum to see the the entire thread with all the photo 
Does anyone know anything about this? Is anyone following the thread and has 
anyone else looked at this or commented on it?
I'm not trying to caste aversions or dispute John's record but people should be 
aware that the record is being questioned by other birding communities. It 
would be great if someone could set them straight......
