  • This bird was found on September 24 in Pennsylvania’s Powdermill Natural Reserve
  • If the bird is both male and female, it is called gandromorphism- Researchers

The research team has discovered such a bird, which is half male and half female. Its name is Rose-breasted Groosebeaks. One part has black and large wings like male sparrows, while the other female part has brown and yellow feathers. There are no spots on its chest. It is a symptom of a female bird.

Researchers at Powdermill Natural Reserve, Pennsylvania, who discovered it, say it is called gandromorphism when the bird is both male and female.

When is the birth of such a bird
According to researchers, such a bird is born when two sperms of the male meet the female’s egg, which contains two nucleus. In such a situation, the chromosome of both male and female is introduced into the embryo. It rarely happens in birds. Such a case occurred 64 years ago at the Powdermill Aviation Research Center in the US.

Annie Lindsey, who is part of the research team, says, “It has been a wonderful experience in my life.” We found this while calculating the population of birds.

The darker and larger winged part is like a male bird, and on the right side there are smaller and lighter colored wings, which denote the specialty of being a female bird.

This bird can also lay eggs like a female.
This bird is found in North America. If it migrates it can also reach Mexico and South America. It is from the Cardinal Family.

According to scientists, only the ovary on the right side is active in birds. In this bird too, the right side is the female one. Therefore it can lay eggs and can also breed.

The most important thing for breeding
In the future, says Annie Lindsey, will act like a male or like a female, it will depend on its sound. If it is humming like a male bird then only females will be attracted. Or it can also be, it is attracted towards male sparrows themselves. Such cases are very rare, which give many new information.

Annie says, We got this bird on the evening of 24 September. It will later behave like a male or like a female, depending on its wings and voice. I think its wings are likely to develop more like a male. Its colors will be more vibrant. The line between male and female will be deeper.
