Mysterious Songbird Rediscovered In Madagascar After Eluding Scientists For 24 Years

   March 1, 2023

The Dusky Tetraka, a small olive and yellow-throated bird that had eluded ornithologists for 24 years, was rediscovered by an expedition team searching the tropical forests of northeastern Madagascar. The team led by The Peregrine Fund’s Madagascar Program, found the species in two different remote sites: one on the Masoala peninsula in late December 2022 and another near Andapa in January 2023.
