Bird rediscovered after 129 years

A slightly built, long-beaked little bird not seen since 1867 has been rediscovered in Thailand. Birdlife International announced that the large-billed reed-warbler was rediscovered at a wastewater treatment plant in Thailand. The species Acrocephalus orinus had previously been known only from a single specimen found in India. It has short wings and was not thought to migrate.
