Hello all,

As I got the news of this intriguing development in SW. Queensland, I was 
coincidentally reading a book entitled "Dead Parrot"
which featured the subject creature prominently in its narrative . It  also 
illustrated this parrot on the cover as depicted by William Cooper.
The book , strange to say, is a " who dunit" which centres on birding and 
birding activities in the vicinity of Sydney  NSW with most of the action in 
and about Moreton Bay (Botany Bay), and other suburbs north to Broken Bay  The 
author reveals the  intimate awareness of our interests that could only come 
about from shared experience and actual involvement . I cannot assess the 
policing actions , but they have a certain ring of knowledge on behalf of 
writer also.
The author is John Huxley,and it was  published by Walla Walla Press of 
Petersham NSW. My interest in the book is purely one of timing and the verses 
from John Kinsella's" Night Parrots" quoted in the frontispiece.
