History repeating itself
JUNE 8, 2011
I certainly did when I visited the two southern islands of Tonga a few years ago. The two endemic species found in Tonga are not found in these islands, and the other species present are also found on more traditional destinations of Fiji and Samoa. And it is found in Tonga today, darting across the road being the usual view you’d get of these small rails. Southern Tonga had its own flightless Gallirallus rail (an undescribed species).
