Many songbirds breed in North America in the spring and summer and then migrate to Central and South America in the fall. They spend the winter in these warmer areas, where they feed and prepare for the spring migration north and another breeding season. Two hypothetical species of sparrow, A and B, overwinter together in mixed flocks in Costa Rica. In spring, species A goes in the east coast of North America, and species B goes to the west coast. What can you say about the isolating mechanisms of these two species?
Their winter habitat has no bearing on their degree of reproductive isolation.
