Vernon R.L. Head, chairman of BirdLife of South Africa, will present his
quest to solve the mystery of an isolated wing of an unknown species of
nightjar collected in Ethiopia in 2009. In his search for a possible new
species, Head is not just on a mission for a spectacular tick, but he
places his endeavor in the context of other rare and endangered species
suffering from human impact on the environment.
