ODD U should mention him 'cause the only one in Europe is in his country... and it's been there since approx 1850. He
actually said he was a zoologist in this thread too! BIG HINT: its status is now switched from 'vulnerable' to 'data deficient'

What might be Asia’s longest-missing bird just came out of hiding. For the first time in 170 years, researchers reported last week that a black-browed babbler has been found in Indonesia. The discovery of the muted black, gray and chestnut-brown bird solves what an authoritative birding guide describes as “one of the great enigmas of Indonesian ornithology.”

That's because you've probably never been to Borneo or sailed down the Karamata Strait

It'll be in the morning now for something new.
