Elusive Bird Captured on Video

A video claiming to be irrefutable evidence of the existence of B4, the elusive Biscayne Sparrow seen by credible witnesses from 51 countries, has been uploaded to YouTube. The video was allegedly shot during the 22nd ICGFM Conference in Miami. Experts have speculated on other so-called evidence for other mythical creatures including the Loch Ness Monster, the Indomitable Snowman and Big Foot. B4 is possibility the smallest mythical creature ever captured digitally.

The video uploaded in the early hours of May 22nd from an undisclosed location in Miami Florida appears to show three short clips of the Biscayne Bay Brown Bird (B4). Included on the video is some audio that purports to be from the 22nd ICGFM Conference. Speakers can be heard discussing good governance and accountability in government.

Experts in the study of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) will examine the evidence closely. One expert, who asked not to be named, believes that the video is a crude hoax designed to promote the ICGFM blog. "It is a foul attempt to promote the notion of accountability in government", he said.

Members from the "FreeB4 Coalition"argued that the bird was being exploited by public financial management professions and should be freed from the Marriott Biscayne Bay.

Ironically, the main theme of the ICGFM conference was the role of different actors, the public, the private sector, public officials and the press in promoting good governance and accountability in government. The American press was taken to task for its sensational reporting of unimportant events. Once again, the press, or another actor, has stooped low.
