a short summary is that one species of bird gave birth to a different species of bird. To make things ironic is that these are the the Galapagos finches. So take this as you like i just thought i'd share.

If i build an awesome car do you want to initially see all the pictures or just the before and after pictutes?

i posted the link if it grabs your interest, while wired may not be the best source it sure isn't the onion news.

Honestly, I didn't really read the full article. But what I got was that there was a sudden jump in traits/attributes for no reason. There was no gradual shift, just *BOOM* new bird.

Also, I like cars and would be interested to see all the steps in the car build.

havent read the article, but could that me mutation over evolution?

no, because the "mutated" species is reproducing within itself. if it doesnt sustain the species (dying out or starts breeding with others again) then it may be considered a mutation.
