How can it be a new species when it is found in neighboring countries.

It is like saying that Demerara Guy is new to the scrap iron industry.

Birding experts Brian O’Shea and Leon Moore have recorded a new species of bird in Guyana during an ongoing study being conducted in Region One (Barima-Waini).

The new recorded species is the black-chested tyrant, which is more commonly found in neighbouring Brazil, Suriname, and Venezuela. It has a chestnut head, a black breast band, and gray underparts. This species has a large range, and does not approach the thresholds for vulnerability.
