According to a paper recently published in The Auk, the journal of the American Ornithologists Union, three Cornell graduates discovered a new species of bird during a 2008 expedition in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The fruit-eating Sira barbet has a black mask, a pale belly, and a scarlet breast, and DNA analysis confirmed that it is, indeed, a distinct species.

The Cornellians — Michael Harvey, Glenn Seeholzer and Ben Winger — gave the new bird the scientific name Capito fitzpatricki in honor of the Lab of O's executive director, John Fitzpatrick.
