-- For What It's Worth... --

Last year the Rusty-throated Wren-babbler was found in India's mountains after almost 60 years of 'extinction.'
In 2003 the Long-legged Warbler of those vast, difficult-to-search Fiji Islands was re-discovered after just 105+ years on the lam.
And also in 2003 the
New Zealand Storm Petrel, missing for a mere 150 years was re-discovered flying about it's usual part of the world.
So after the Ivory-bill who will be next?

All examples of birds that no one was looking for found in remote areas of the world.

And all three of those species actually exist! (They have photos.)
