G'day all,

Here is an URL that refers to the skin now resident at the Queensland Museum.

When I visited the Museum some years ago it was on display in a special low 
light case.

A couple of years ago, I was told a dead yellow/green body (like a big budgie) 
that had been sighted on the side of the road from Boulia to Winton about 5 
weeks previously
1-1/2 days walking this stretch of road had no result .. except I picked up a 
huge number of bottles and aluminium bottles

I believe "searches" for this bird are a waste of time !
The best chance is to record them coming into water.

Regards from
Bob Forsyth
