Researchers have discovered an unusual bird species in Pennsylvania. The bird is the offspring of a hybrid mother and a warrior of a completely different genus. The combination resulted in a hybrid bird of three species, which has never been recorded before.
"This is extremely rare," said David Toews, principal author of Cornell University. "The woman is a hybrid golden wings / blue wings, also known as Brewster's pins, and then moved away with a chestnutian one-way twist and successfully reproduced."
In hybrid populations a hybrid species was created when two distinct species were separated. While hybridization is common in gold-winged and blue winged warriors, the cross between these species and the cantalidal twisted-pair is extremely rare. Actually, that's something I really do not really know.
In May 2018, the consecrated bird guard from Pennsylvania noticed the strangeness of a unique hybrid bird. He found a male bird singing like a chestnut sail. Surprisingly, he also had some physical characteristics of both Blue-winged and Golden-winged Warblers. The bird was so different that she immediately knew they did not belong to any known species. Lowell Burket contacted researchers at Cornell to confirm his affection.
"I tried to make the sound sound something intellectually so you would not think I was dirt," Burket said. "After photos and videos helped, within a week, researcher David Toews came down, found the bird again and collected blood samples and measurements, and it was a very interesting and exciting morning for us, and a few days later I received a text message from Dave saying, "You were right!"
Genetic analysis has shown that breeding of two different parent species has led to this completely new tri-hybrid bloody liver.
"We looked at genes that code different battalions," explained Toews. "So we can recreate what a hybrid mother would look like an avian equivalent to the detective complex of the face, but made of the genes. We've confirmed that the mother looked like Brewster's stick and that her father was a castrate."
This type of unique hybridization is probably caused by a decrease in the number of inhabitants. For example, a golden winged cheerleader is overly hunted. The species is suggested for entry under the Act on Endangered Species. Because of their fall, these birds have limited choices.
"If this hybridization occurred within the population of golden winged warriors in a significant decline, it suggests that women can do the best out of a bad situation," said Toews. "It also tells us that woodcuts generally remain genetically compatible long after they have developed great differences in appearance."
