Striking new bird discovered in South America

Yariguies Brush Finch.A new species of vibrantly coloured birds has been discovered on a remote mountain range in South America. It has striking black, yellow and red plumage and is named Yariguies Brush Finch.

A British expert co-led the team which made the find during the first biological expedition to the Yariguies Mountains in northern Colombia.

Ms Blanca Huertas, a curator at the Natural History Museum in London, said: "The description of a new bird is a rare event in modern times."

The bird, which has the Latin name Atlapetes Latinuchus Yariguierum, differs from its closest relatives by having a black back and no white markings on its wings.
