University of British Columbia The Greenish Warbler, long considered an idealized example of a single species that diverged into two as it expanded its range, has a much more checkered family history than biologists previously realized. Ring species are a continuous loop of related populations, each adapted to its local environment, with two terminal populations in the loop meeting but now unable to mate.

These are the findings of a team of ornithologists and ecologists from the University of Marburg, the Ornithological Society in Bavaria and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), writing in the Journal of Ornithology. The scientists assessed several thousand reports of Asian birds from the leaf-warbler and thrush families that had strayed to Europe. They discovered that the distance between the breeding...

The Arctic Warbler (Phylloscopus borealis), is a widespread leaf warbler in birch or mixed birch forest near water throughout its breeding range in Fennoscandia and northern Asia. It has established a foothold in North America, breeding in Alaska. This warbler is strongly migratory. The entire population winters in southeast Asia. It therefore has one of the longest migrations of any Old World insectivorous bird. This is a typical leaf warbler in appearance, grayish-green above and...

This warbler is migratory and winters mainly in India. It also occurs in western Europe in October, despite an 1800 mile distance from its natural breeding grounds. This is a common bird of mountain woodlands at altitudes of up to 11,500 feet. The Western Hume's Leaf...
