Nice. Discovered by John Gould, the worlds most famous British ornithologist. He named it after his late wife Elizabeth who was secretly responsible for most of his spectacular and accurate bird illustrations. A fitting honor for Lady Gould, a prolific and gifted scientific illustrator.

Thanks for your answer then maybe you should add that comment in the notes section and also add the spotting to the captive animals mission since this is an endangered species and would be nice to know the details. Here is the link to the mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7973...
