End Of Civil War Makes Way For Birders In Angola

Bird Life International: Ian Sinclair

The first ornithologists to visit northern Angola since the end of the country's civil war have 'rediscovered' three species of bird not seen for decades, a conservation group said on Wednesday. The six-day expedition at the end of January yielded sightings of the orange-breasted bush-shrike and the white-headed robin-chat, two small birds not been seen by scientists since 1957.
