Everyone needs a vacation, but the night parrot of Australia hasn't been seen alive in the wild for over 100 years. On Friday, naturalist John Young claimed to have snagged a photo of one of the birds on May 25th of 2013.

wow! well I love a person with a passion so first let me say kudos to Young ! I certainly hope his claim is grounded because that means this elusive beauty managed to thrive somewhere. I think the worst thing we can do at the moment is to let too many people anywhere near it, said Young. AND YES TO THAT ! thanks for the interesting post.
