On 10 May 2019 CNN reported:
A previously extinct species of bird returned from the dead, reclaiming the island it previously lived on and re-evolving itself back into existence, scientists have said. The white-throated rail colonized the Aldabra Atoll in the Indian Ocean and evolved to become flightless, before being completely wiped out when the island disappeared below the sea around 136,000 years ago. ... The extremely rare process is known as iterative evolution -- the repeated evolution of a species from the same ancestor at different times in history.
