What I spent a lot of time looking up into the trees in search of. There is a research team working on this little bird and its ecology and evolution. It was the reason Cousin Island was made into a reserve - at one time just 26l of these birds survived in a mangrove area on one side of the island. There are now around 350 on Cousin and some have been translocated to neighbouring islands to create new populations.
