    Scientist in the month of June 2013 discovered a complete new species of bird in the capital of Cambodia (Phnom Penh) and named it Cambodian tailorbird. It was first spotted in 2009 during routine checks for avian flu. Tailorbirds are in the family of warbler and got their name of their careful preparation of their nests, waving leaves together. The modern discovery of a un-described bird species within the limits of a large populous city is very much uncommon. The discovery indicates that new species of birds may still be found in familiar and unexpected locations.
