A Preview of the New Specimen: Greater Yellownape
|Last week (24 June), I acquired a post-necropsy specimen from the Wildlife Diseases Laboratories for the Zoological Society of San Diego.
Aside from bird checklists and an account of polymorphism, the species seems to be scarcely represented in the literature. I know only that there are 9 – 10 suspecies.
Regarding this specimen, I have been told that she was female, and I have been supplied with her tracking numbers, thanks to the well-organized Senior Pathology Technician at the zoo laboratory.
