Conservation group discovers rare bird breeding site in Afghanistan

by Anonymous on Jan. 19th, 2010

World Conservation Society researchers have located the breeding ground for what's been called "the world's least known bird species". The large-billed reed warbler (seen here) was first identified in India in 1867, and another not seen again until 139 years later. Now WCS researchers have found the rare bird's breeding area in a remote mountain region of Afghanistan. Read more about it on the WCS website.
