Nightmare Finches: Real Science Radio gives news updates from Bob Enyart with a small maskless victory in federal court to Fred Williams and Bob's discussion of the Alfred Hitchcock sequel: The Birds, Darwin's Finch Nightmare. This is an update of RSR's classic List of Not So Old Things, testing the Darwinian claim that it took 2.3 million years for one finch species to adapt to fill various ecological niches on the Galapagos Islands. So biologists brought a single species to a US Bird Reservation in the Pacific thousands of miles from other land. These birds birds diversified their beaks and the related muscles, and diversified their behavior and filled various ecological niches in only 17 years!
