Default The spotted wren-babbler has a new title!

What a wonderful discovery and a super looking bird!

A unique family of birds containing just one species has been discovered by researchers.

An interesting subject. I wish that the journalists who publish articles like this would aim for accuracy in their titles rather than choosing whatever title is the most attention grabbing though.

Your title "The Spotted Wren-babbler has a new title!" is far more accurate. A new family of birds has not been discovered, it has been discovered that a bird species that has been known about since the 19th century represents a unique family that had previously not been recognised - there is a big difference!
