New bird species discovered in Peru

A new small, black-coloured bird species, with an unusual voice, has been discovered in the remote Andes Mountains of central Peru.

The bird 'Junin Tapaculo' was found by Peter Hosner, a doctoral student of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Kansas, and his team, during fieldwork in Junin in central Peru.
"We found the Junin Tapaculo in the field by its distinctive voice," Hosner said. Peter and fellow researchers made voice recordings and collected specimens needed in all scientific species descriptions.
Hosner said the Junin Tapaculo is small and uniform blackish in colour. It is notable for its habit of sticking its tail straight up in the air.
In appearance and behaviour, the birds are similar to wrens, even though they are not closely related. They have been described as mouselike and photophobic.
"Tapaculos are recognised by ornithologists and birders as one of the most difficult bird families to observe in the field," said Hosner.
The scientists reported the bird's range is limited to a specific band of elevation within the Andes Mountains between about 8,000 and 10,500 feet.
The study was published in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology.
