New Species of Bird Discovered

In an unexplored mountain forest in northern Columbia a new colorful species of bird has been discovered. The red-crowned Yariguies brush-finch, named for the indigenous tribe that once lived in this area is a close relative to the yellow-breasted brush finch with the only difference being a solid black back and no white markings on its wings. I find it very exciting to know that there are still species of animals that are still yet to be discovered, but with the continuing loss of critical habitat there may be some unknown species that we may never know existed.
