The critically endangered Gurney's Pitta

The endangered Gurney's Pitta have been found in southern Myanmar near Linya National Park, in the Ngawun Reserve Forest. Bird Life International, Biodiversity And Nature Conservation Association together with the Ministry of Forestry has found the largest group of Gurney's Pitta in Myanmar. They found about 150 of these birds in the same place.

The Gurney's Pitta are often called Jewel-thrush. Until 2003, only about 20 of these rare species were found in the world and the respective organizations were much concerned for their existence.

 

The scientific name of Gurney's Pitta is Pitta gurneyi. It is a brilliantly colored secretive bird of the forest floor and is only known from peninsular Thailand and adjacent southern Tanintharyi, Myanmar.

But now, Bird Life International and Biodiversity And Nature Conservation Association have found that not only Gurney's Pittas but also other endangered species dwells in the Ngawun Reserve Forest.

These organization and the Ministry of Forestry will keep these reserved forests in safety.
