The breeding grounds of the Blackthroat Luscinia obscura have been discovered in the Qinlang mountains of China’s Shaanxi Province. The seven singing males were almost equivalent to the total seen in the wild since the bird was discovered in the 1800s.

For some great images of the bird check out this publication of the Oriental Bird Club (link is a PDF).
