Red Siskin Population Discovered

This new population may be a distinct subspecies

By Ian Hinze

A new population of red siskins was discovered in April at a location in South America (the exact area is confidential for now in order to protect the population and allow time for scientists to undertake studies). This new population may be a distinct subspecies, because it occupies a different habitat to its norm and is geographically isolated. This group of birds may have been separated from the presently known groups for at least 8,000 years.
