The Cloud-forest Pygmy-Owl is the latest new discovery to result from Robbins' work in Ecuador. During the past decade, Robbins has described four new bird species to science. Because birds are perhaps the best known group of organisms, the discovery of a new species is a relatively rare event, with an average of only one new species described every year. Robbins' and Stiles' work is based on analysis of the birds' vocalizations and on specimens accumulated since 1987. More
