Alan T. Period 8 Natural Selection - Birds
On the Galapagos Islands, there was a species of birds that had different colored beaks. Most of the species had brown and grey beaks, while few had bright, vivid, red beaks.
The females were more attracted the birds that had red beaks over the ones that had brown or grey beaks. That allowed birds with red beaks to have a higher chance of mating.
Eventually, the birds that had brown and grey beaks no longer mated as much as the ones with red beaks, and started to die.
As time progressed, the red beaked birds were able to survive by mating. They passed on their traits to their babies, allowing them to survive and reproduce as well.
After years and years of reproduction, the Galapagos Islands were inhabited by birds that had red beaks.
