A conservation research team in Myanmar got a local call from the distant past when a bird long thought to be extinct suddenly chirped and begged to differ. And with that the Myanmar Jerdon's babbler (Chrysomma altirostre) was back in the birding phone book (for those who remember those big blocky books with phone numbers in them).
While surveying grasslands near the town of Myitkyo in May 2014, a team comprised of researchers from the Wildlife Conservation Society, Myanmar's Nature and Wildlife Conservation Division, and the National University of Singapore (NUS) heard the call of the long-lost babbler.
