I'm not sure how helpful this is to the discussion but I thought it might amuse
some of you!
SEARCH FOR THE NIGHT PARROT
You can leave the night to the Night Parrot
As far as I am concerned.
I've seen Eyrean Grasswrens and Orange Chats,
I've seen birds till my eyeballs burned,
But I'm giving up on the Night Parrot.
I declare the searching adjourned.
Night Parrots drink in the night time.
Most birds drink in the day.
So here we sit in the sand dunes
With our spotlight down by the waterhole,
Doing our bit for science,
And all we ask of this dopey bird
Is a modicum of compliance.
To come and drink at the waterhole
And let us go home to bed.
You can leave the night to the Night Parrot.
There is nothing more to be said.
Graham Alcorn. Coongie Lakes, 1988.
