Brand New Bird

Don't you just love it when a newly-discovered species is cute as a bug. Way cuter than a bug. Especially while so many species are endangered there are actually animals out there we have never seen before. 'We' being Western scientists, not the people who actually live next door to the bird. From Gabon Africa, we bring you the olive-backed forest robin. I had no idea there were robins of any kind in Africa. Shows you what I know. And this is not a case of wishful thinking on the part of the scientst's part, they actually did DNA testing to make sure the species was new.
