Introducing the Varzea Thrush Turdus sanchezorum
It is not every day that a new species of bird is described, and this definitely does not tend to happen with birds that have been repeatedly collected and sit, as skins, in museums around the world. But the Varzea Thrush Turdus sanchezorum, described in this paper in The Condor (link is a PDF), is one such species. How cool is that?
Hat-tip to Duncan.
