Night parrots are a nocturnal species formerly found throughout arid central Australia. After undergoing a severe decline in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the species all but disappeared. Despite several plausible reports throughout the 20th century, it was 2013 before a surviving population was found in western Queensland and field research on the species could take place.
