FOR THOSE CONFUSED ABOUT SPECIATION:

'New type of bird' found in Nepal (Charles Haviland, 2/07/08, BBC News)

A previously unknown sub-species of bird has been discovered in the southern grasslands of Nepal, scientists say. [...]

The bird was first spotted in 2005 in a wetland area.

But it is only now that taxonomists have decided it is distinctive enough to be described as a separate sub-species.


That's all it amounts to, the intelligent design of the taxonomic tree.
