Hello all

While I am not at liberty to disclose too much yet, I have good
information relating to the validity of the find. Watch this space.

Here is what my friend wrote to me on June 4 at 7:57am and I have
scientist contacts who are in the know, but will not disclose anything.
And I am glad they are not.

"Hello Akos..guess what I just found the holy nocturnal green grail in the
desert. I have been quietly looking for it for 8 years. I am stunned
beyond belief. It is the find of my life and I have hundreds of images
feathers for DNA. Hr video and much more. This is going to blow the lid
off the bird world when released in Bris around the end of June. The
highlight of my birding life. A bird that has not been seen for over a
hundred years alive. Be safe -insert name here-."

And another message:

"Hello again Akos-yes indeed I have and the goose bumps go up my spine
every time I look at the images-hundreds of them. What a beautiful bird.
 The news will hit the deck world wide in about 4 weeks. I will be
critised heavily for not giving the site out-but for me the bird is to
precious - cheers to you and your family a BLOODY EXCITED - insert name
here - "

I believe it is very genuine and feel blessed to have the privilege of
knowing well ahead of time. I cannot think of anyone who deserves to have
achieved this accolade more than this fellow. He is a legend and my idol
in many ways and hope he does not give any locations, or any hints to
protect the birds. One can imagine the hordes of salivating twitchers
stomping over each others' heads to tick a new species off. Maybe me old
mate Teddy will find them at Nurragingy next. Who knows?
