Night Parrot is Most Sought-after Bird: Young

Queensland naturalist John Young has highlighted that a rare night parrot is earnestly sought after by many people. The bird was found to have this charm of being one of the most sought-after birds and has been photographed by the naturalist. It also finds a place in the list of Smithsonian as one of the world's five most mysterious birds.

Shedding light on the holy grail, Mr. Young said, "To sit there and watch this holy grail come out, like some sort of mythical ghost... it puffed itself up in some sort of alien shape, almost doubling its size, shaped like an echidna, raking it's head on the ground... it was electrifying".

Recently at Brisbane at the Queensland Museum, Mr. Young was found uncovering the photographs and videos clicked by him. He fleshed out the details of his journey of capturing the bird in his camera. He had travelled 11,000 kilometres on a bike, 32,00,00 kilometres in a vehicle and spent 17,000 hours in the field for a period of fifteen years.

He did not unveil the regions where he found the bird but one of the areas is Lake Eyre Basin. He expressed his moments of search which he calls as one of the cherished moments of his life.
