Exciting new discovery!

Birds are still being 'discovered' out there and this year is no exception and this summer the location was the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Here the fantastic-looking Karimui Owlet-nightjar was seen and photographed and this is the first ever live observation 52 years after its initial discovery in 1964. See the full article here and image. Here is an image of a similar species, the Australian owlet-nightjar by Aviceda.
