RARE BIRD REDISCOVERED

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

One of the rarest birds in the western hemi­sphere, the Ba­hama Nuthatch, has been rediscovered by re­search teams search­ing the is­land of Grand Ba­hama. The find­ing is par­tic­u­larly sig­nif­i­cant be­cause the species had been feared ex­tinct fol­low­ing the cat­a­strophic dam­age caused by Hur­ri­cane Matthew in 2016, and had not been found in sub­se­quent searches. But it is feared that there could only be two left – plac­ing the species on the verge of ex­tinc­tion.
