Heads up from (and shout out to) Born Free USA

Published 09/08/09

An expedition team in Papua New Guinea for the BBC programme ‘Lost Land of the Volcano’ has filmed two Buff-faced Pygmy Parrots for the first time. The parrots stand less than 9cm tall and weigh 11.5g (0.41oz). To quote the report on the BBC website (which has some nice video), “The tiny bird, which is not much bigger than an adult person’s thumb, is smaller than some of the insects with which it shares the forest”. Cute. (Thanks to Monica Engebretson of Born Free USA for the heads-up.)
