For Quiz 6 – we are going to ask you about two subcontinental endemics which happen to be “sisters”. These sister species were once considered conspecific but are now recognised as two separate species. They are very particular to their choice of habitat, in which their habits ensure that these birds remain poorly known

Looking at the range maps below, can you guess which species we are referring to?
