Hiring a car in Darwin a non-birdo told me that he had been driving a car
from Brisbane to Darwin and late at night a large green budgie shaped Parrot
had flow over his car. This was somewhere near the QLD border.

There is something about Night Parrots that they have a bird watcher evasion
system and are so only seen by non--birdwatchers?

G'day all

For the record since Night Parrots are the flavour,

Treat it as you will, but for the record, in the late 90's I was working
in Longreach as a barman (sounds sussed I know), however we had many
workers visit the restaurant, and of course I divulged in conversation.
I remember talking to a road gang who were in charge of tabledrains etc
and worked between Longreach and Windorah. I remember one bloke telling
me of green parrots being flushed from the grasslands on the odd
occassion in the southwest when pushing drains. These blokes were not
birdos obviously but I found the comment interesting. They were sure
they were not Budgies!
