In recent years, the number of extinct creatures grows. However, thanks to wildlife lovers, we also hear good news about the rediscovery of species that were considered to be extinct.
For the first time after 100 years, a parrot species that were defunct actually exist and was captured on camera in a reserve in Western Queensland.
Birdwatchers had no clue what was waiting for them at nighttime. Four friends from Broom are experienced in locating wildlife birds.
During a bird-watching journey that lasted 9 days, they heard a bird sound near a salt lake that was not similar to other sounds they are familiar with.
As they explain, it was a new sound but they kept staying watchful.
In the morning, they detected a night parrot with yellow and green plumage and black feathers.
As they always have cameras with them, the group immediately starting capturing the bird. The birdwatchers were elated and very excited because they have been putting effort into this moment for a very long time.
These creatures are endangered and rare to detect. They live only in Australia. Experts considered that night parrots are extinct but gladly now they have been spotted.
This is a great opportunity to continue following them and think about breeding the species.
