New Caledonian Grassbird

Megalurulus mariae Verreaux, J, 1869

The New Caledonia Thicketbird or New Caledonia Grassbird (Megalurulus mariei), is a bird species. Previously placed in the "Old World Warbler" family Sylviidae, it does not seem to be a close relative of the typical warblers; probably it belongs in the grass warbler family Locustellidae. This species is endemic to New Caledonia. Source: Wikipedia
