What article from a recent birding magazine have you read that was of interest to you? Which magazine was it from and what was the article about?

"Lost and found: a gap analysis for the Neotropical avifauna" in the debut issue of the NBC's promising Neotropical Birding magazine.

I like the looks of the magazine, and would strongly recommend any birders with even a passing interest in the birds of the tropical Americas take out a membership in the Neotropical Bird Club to receive this magazine and their journal Cotinga. The new magazine features good photos, artwork and interesting articles.

The above article spotlights the "lost" and the "found" species of Central and South America. These birds include some of the most mysterious and sought-after birds on the continent, such as the Recurve-billed Bushbird, Cone-billed Tanager and of course the Kinglet Calyptura. The inclusion of good up-to-date information regarding recent sightings of these species should be enticing to adventurous birders who spend their free time ogling the plates of Ridgley and Tudor's Birds of South America.

A brief note on one species not mentioned in the article which qualifies as a once lost, now found species, the Golden-crowned Manakin (Lepidothrix vilasboasi). Lost from its discovery in the 1959 until being rediscovered in 2002 by Fabio Olmos and J.F. Pacheco, this species was recently seen again and recordings of its voice made by a British ornithologist - probably the first birder to see it since its rediscovery.

Still plenty of exciting birds to be found and re-found!
