Collections / FOUND: Locals and Scientists Rediscover the Black-browed Babbler in Borneo After 172 Years


After more than 170 years, locals in Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia have helped rediscover the lost black-browed babbler. The bird has been missing since it was first described and collected by western scientists around 1848. Since then, the trail to find the bird has gone cold despite several attempts to find the species, leaving scientists in the dark about its ecology, population and behavior. Many feared the species may be extinct.
