The first known nest of one of the world's rarest birds - the Critically Endangered Stresemann's Bristlefront - has been discovered in Brazil. Of perhaps equal significance is that strong evidence of active nestlings was also found.

This should be kept quite.If it is publicised too much these birds will most probably be stolen and traded off by poachers or killed by hunters

This is exciting, but lets hope our joy does not disturb its way of life.

What a great discovery. Now to hope that this species can recover though that seems an extraordinary task. Thanks for the link Cher.
