This is the latest addition to Madeiran avifauna. This is the Galeirão, a species that nestled in Madeira for the first time in 2009 (the second picture is the only survivor of the first litter of Madeira coots). I leave here an article that I wrote about this event and that unfortunately did not get to know the light of day.
