Bahamas | Critically endangered nuthatch, thought killed off by hurricane, spotted again

Researchers have finally spotted the Bahama nuthatch, an endangered bird that they thought had gone extinct following a devastating hurricane in 2016. Things are still not rosy for the bird, though: the researchers fear there might be just a handful of individuals of the species left.


“The photographs clearly show this distinctive species and cannot be anything else,” Michael Parr, president of the American Bird Conservancy, said in a statement. “Fortunately this is not a hard bird to identify, but it was certainly a hard bird to find.”
