One of the rarest birds of the WORLD. Population estimated in less than ten individuals. The good news Is that the male in the video, that was single until the beginning of last month (Jan 2016) is now accompanied by a female \o/ More hope for the future of this seriously threatened species that is only found at Reserva Mata do Passarinho, in the border of the states of Bahia and Minas Gerais, managed by the Brazilian NGO: Fundação Biodiversitas.
