New bird from Madagascar

Third species of rail from the "8th continent"

This article oddly refers to the new species of rail from Madagascar as a subspecies, but otherwise it's a good introduction.  We are still discovering new birds all over the world, despite predictions some 20 years back that we had just about all the birds in hand, so to speak.  OK, this one is not really flashy or spectacular, but it IS important, as every new species is!
