Primarily green with yellow-green underparts and blackish markings throughout, less extensive than in longer-tailed Ground Parrot, in which adults have pale eyes (Night Parrot has dark eyes). The “holy grail” of Australian birds and presumed extinct but recently found in widely separated locations in Queensland and Western Australia.
