New Bird Species


In what Birdlife International describes as “the most sensational ornithological discovery in India for more than half a century,” an Indian astronomer has identified a new bird species, Bugun Liocichla.

The multicolored bird was tracked by Ramana Athreya in the remote Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh, near the border with China. Athreya named the bird after the Bugun tribe, which inhabits the area.
