Scientists have discovered a rare new bird species with a bald head.
The creature, dubbed the bare-faced bulbul, was found in Laos, and is the only known bald songbird in mainland Asia.
 
It's also the first time in over 100 years that a new Asian species of bulbul bird has been uncovered.
 
"To find a new bird species is very rare these days," said Peter Clyne, assistant director for Asia Programs at the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York. "It's not like we're finding new species of birds every year. This is certainly a highly newsworthy event."
