Get Out Your Life List
While you were sleeping, you became one bird farther away from completing your life list. An article on yesterday's BirdersWorld Magazine page and an article on today's BirdLife International page describe a new species of bird discovered last December in Laos.
"Scientists named it the Bare-faced Bulbul (right) because of the lack of feathers on its face and part of its head." --Matt Mendenhall, BirdersWorld.com
You won't see the Bare-faced Bulbul at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest, but you can see plenty of life-list birds along the 1.75-mile boardwalk!
