Bitf Doesn't Sing But Barks

The Antpitta avis canis Ridgley is a bird that looks like a stuffed duck on stilts and barks like a dog.

The bird was discovered by ornithologist Robert S. Ridgley in the Andes in Ecuador in June 1998.

Thirty of these long-legged, black-and-white barking birds were found.

It apparently had gone undetected because it lives in remote parts and, of course, doesn't sing.

The size of a duck, it is one of the largest birds discovered in the last 50 years.

There also are dogs that do not bark!

The basenji, smallish dog with a silky copper coat, does not bark. Instead, it yodels when it get excited.

Wild dogs like the African Wild Dog also do not bark.
