New book highlights new endemic Palauan birds and migratory bird species
Koror, Palau – The 2016 edition of The State of Palau’s Birds, a book produced by the Belau National Museum with support from Palau Conservation Society (PCS), is now available. This 7th annual publication is a stunning visual display of a few of the 169 resident and migratory bird species of Palau. This year’s book begins with new research about two birds – the Kiuidukall (Palau Cicada Bird) and Cherosech (Rust-capped Kingfisher). Once thought to be widespread outside Palau, these forest birds have recently been found to be endemic species found only in Palau.
