Amazing as it might sound, ornithologists are still discovering several bird species each year that are completely new to science. These aren’t all obscure brown birds on tiny islands – witness the bizarre Bare-faced Bulbul from Laos (2009), spectacular Araripe Manakin from Brazil (1998), or gaudy Bugun Liocichla from north-east India (2006).

Birds New to Science documents more than half a century of these remarkable discoveries, covering around 300 species. Each account includes the story of discovery, a brief description of the bird (many with accompanying photographs), and details of what is known about its biology, range and conservation status.

Written in an engaging style, this is a rich reference to an incredible era of adventure in ornithology.
