Colombia Birding News 

Until recently, wildlife in the 100 km SerranĂ­a de los Yariguíes mountain range in Colombia went unstudied, because of the difficulty of access and political instability, but researchers working with the Columbian bird conservation organisation, Fundacion Proaves, have made great advances with the discovery of a series of undescribed species and subspecies and yet another new bird has just been added to their tally.

The expedition team also reported finding the world's most viable populations for various critically endangered bird species. This led to the Yariguíes mountains being declared a National Park and the foundation of an adjacent nature reserve.

You can read more about the expedition and its finds online at Wildlife Extra.
