Bird That Barks Like A Dog
There is a bird that looks like a stuffed duck and barks like a dog. It's the Antpitta avis canis Ridgley and it was discovered by ornithologist Robert S. Ridgley in the Andes in Ecuador in June 1998. Thirty of these long-legged, black-and-white barking birds were found. It apparently had gone undetected because it lives in remote parts and, of course, doesn’t sing. It is one of the largest birds discovered in the 20th Century.
