From Wikipedia:

Bruszewo-Borkowizna [bruˈʂɛvɔ bɔrkɔˈvizna] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Sokoły, within Wysokie Mazowieckie County, Podlaskie Voivodeship, in north-eastern Poland.

That’s clearly the wrong article. Let’s try again:

The African emerald cuckoo (Chrysococcyx cupreus) is a species of cuckoo that is native to Africa. As a member of the Cuculidae genus, the African emerald cuckoo is an Old World cuckoo. There are four subspecies … [and] its range covers most of sub-Saharan Africa.
