While making repairs at a zoo, it became necessary to place a species of bird from Africa in the same enclosure as a bird species from South America. To everyones surprise, some of the birds mated and produced hybrid offspring. The hybrids were eventually separated from the other birds and placed in their own enclosure. Again to everyones surprise the hybrids mated and produced their own offspring. According to todays biological concept of a species, how should all of these birds be classified? d?
