As an aside, as I was looking into this a bit, I found a widely circulated April Fool's Day joke from a couple of years back saying that the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has confirmed the re-emergence of the bird.

Check this out, apparently it was re-discovered in 2009.

Looks too elaborate to be an April Fool's joke to me. But I could be wrong, I'm easily fooled in the state I'm in right now.

Yep, it's a fake. here's the link:

Damn, I'm going to have to stop posting before I can check stuff out better or my head clears.

Could see it was a fake by looking at the image itself, the bird is clearly 2d

It looks similar to a sun conure or sun parakeet. Google has some good photos:

I apologize, that was a hasty reply on my part. I meant to suggest it may be a female sun parakeet, which typically has less vibrant coloring than a male. After doing an internet search, I see the difference isn't that noticeable in sun parakeets:

"....males' are often just a little more intense and vivid in that department, specifically in the areas surrounding their stomachs and faces. However, the additional luminance of the males isn't always easily apparent, as these parrots' plumage coloring is highly "case by case" in the first place, regardless of sex."

I think Rafterman may have solved the mystery.
