"The park ranger Robert "Shorty" Cupitt was repairing a section of
 track in a remote part of Diamantina National Park, Queensland, when
 the blade of his grader exposed the headless corpse of a bird he could
 not immediately identify.

 The yellow-bellied bird, which appeared to have flown into a nearby
 barbed-wire fence and had been decapitated, was eventually passed to
 experts at Queensland Museum. They identified it as a juvenile night
 parrot. The ultimate, real-life dead parrot."
