Prince Ruspoli's Turaco is only found in Ethiopia?

Prince Ruspoli's Turaco only found in Ethiopia (credit Nik Borrow)

Prince Ruspoli's Turaco,is often described as the rarest, most beautiful, most enigmatic and Ethiopia's most ellusive bird. First discovered in 1890s , disappeared for almost 50 years and reappeared in 1940s, again diappeares for almost 30 years and reappears in 1970s. There is nothing known about the species. The bird's nest and eggs have never been seen. Now you know.

Ayder memorial service in Mekelle
On June 5, 1998 Ayder Elementary School civilian schoolchildren, teachers, and parents were massacred by the Eritrean Government warplanes. Our brothers and sisters of the Ayder Memorial Library Project Committee are trying to build a Library in memory of the victims of this cowardly act. Tigrai Online would like to invite every Tigraian/Ethiopian world wide to help this project.

Editor’s comment: Since the early fifteen hundreds westerners has been sneaking to Africa and particularly to Ethiopia pretending to be religious missionaries, NGOs, Humanitarians, Civil rights fighters and military and government advisories. The truth is they are all after one thing, spying for their notional governments. They are all wolves disguised in sheep’s skin.
