The islands of Sao Tome, Principe and Annobon in the Gulf of Guinea, each of which is an entire EBA, add several endemic and interesting bird species to the region's avifauna including the dwarf olive ibis (Bostrychia bocagei, CR).
Four bird species were recently rediscovered after having been unobserved for more than 60 years and are all threatened: the dwarf olive ibis (Bostrychia bocagei, CR), Newton's fiscal (Lanius newtoni, CR), the São Tomé canary (Neospiza concolor, CR), and the São Tomé short-tail (Amaurocichla bocaii, VU).
The dwarf olive ibis (Bostrychia bocagei, CR) is an example of a species that is much smaller than other members of its genus.
