New songbird discovered in Laos

Scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WSC) have discovered a new species of songbird with a bald, almost featherless face in Laos. The bird, a bulbul, has gone undetected for so long because it lives in an isolated, rather inhospitable area. This is the first new bulbul to have been discovered in 100 years, and has been given the name Pycnonotus hualon.┬áDr Peter Clyne of the WSC noted “There are still quite a lot of places in Laos that have not yet been explored. ” BBC
