    Default "Spectacled" Flowerpecker - Danum Valley

    Hi folks

    while working at Danum Valley, a good friend of mine was shown a photograph taken that afternoon from the canopy walkway of what appeared to be a species of flowerpecker quite unlike anything already known. Fortunately, the bird reappeared the following two days and allowed him to observe it well. Seeing as it was in a very well-watched area it was doubly surprising. I was very priviliged to be one of the first people to see the photographs - quite a strange experience! The bird has not, to my knowledge, been seen since...

    Here's the write-up, with photos, from the soon to hit-the-doormats Birding Asia 12.

    Makes you wonder what else is waiting...

    considering how well watched this area is this is an unbelievable find. Just proves, not that proof should be needed, how valuable and irreplaceable these forests are.
