MISS­ING SPECIES

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

Sci­en­tists in the Galá­pa­gos may have un­cov­ered the is­land chain’s first mod­ern bird ex­tinc­tion. The San Cris­to­bal Ver­mil­lion Fly­catcher, newly sep­a­rated as a dis­tinct species from the Gala­pa­gos Ver­mil­lion Fly­catcher, has not been seen since 1987. No one is sure why the species has dis­ap­peared, but it may be ow­ing to invasive species.
