While the Night Parrot is undoubtedly, the Holy Grail of Australian (and 
probably international) birders, we should do the right thing and not attempt 
either find it, or if a population is found to be on an accessible site, not 
attempt to "tick" it. Birders have been a significant factor in the decline of 
a number of bird species world wide , e.g. Gurneys Pitta and Bornean Ground 
Cuckoo, in what had previously been significant locations for these species.

So, for the Ground Parrot's sake leave it alone. One less tick won't kill you.
