Jerdon Babbler back from the grave

The Jerdon Babbler, thought to be extinct since 1941, has been found at an abandoned agricultural plant in Myanmar by a team led by WCS. A little glimmer of happiness in a world where many species are already lost.

Jerdon's Babbler had only thought to have disappeared from Myanmar until recently - there are populations in India eg.

This is what I saw, didn't mis-read it. Just someone else's mistake that I've read, sorry again.
