The Qld Museum Boulia bird does have a head, this was the only mistake in
Greg's otherwise excellent article, so lets stop talking about headless
Night Parrots.

It's easier to claim the bird was something rare if the head's missing.

Hello Lorne

Although the Museum specimen was in poor condition, my memory is that it did
have the majority of its skull

Has anybody else seen the specimen ?
