Dark Newtonia, Amber Mountain, Madagascar Sorry for the very poor photo, but it's the only capture I have of this species. I'm posting it because it's another member of the Vanga family, a family of birds that is incredibly diverse in appearance, and entirely endemic as family to Madagascar (with one or two species also occurring in Komoro).
