In the 1840s, a mysterious bird was discovered during an expedition to the East Indies. It is called black browed blabber. This species has never been seen in the wild again, and a filled specimen with bright yellow glass eyes is the only evidence of its existence. Until the black-browed long bird in Indonesia, no Asian bird has been missing. It has been gone for the past 170 years. This bird is often referred to as “the biggest enigma in Indonesian ornithology”.
Black-Browed Blabber: It has strong bank bill, chocolate color and unique black eyeliner stripes, and its iris has a striking maroon color. It has brown wings and black stripes on its eyebrows.
IUCN Status: Data Deficient.
