"The Australian has learned that National Parks and Wildlife Service
 officers have found a dead night parrot in the state's far west,
 confirming the survival of Australia's rarest bird.
 In a discovery of international significance, the parrot was found in
 November in the Diamantina Lakes region after it flew into a barbed-wire
 fence. The Government has kept the find secret to avoid birdwatchers
 searching for night parrots while it does a survey to find more. "
