More Than We Thought

Gurney's Pitta (Pitta gurneyi), Endangered

Some good news, from BirdLife International.
"A recent paper published online in BirdLife's journal Bird Conservation International, provides strong evidence that the global population of Gurney's Pitta . . . once believed to be one of the rarest birds in the world, is much greater than was previously estimated."
