Less familiar to residents of the US and Canada are several Junco groups that inhabit the highlands of Mexico and Central America. Building upon findings revealed in "Diversification I: the Dark-eyed Juncos," this segment will allow the viewer to join researchers from around the world as they travel to remote high elevation habitats to study unique Junco groups. Exploring the concepts of endemism, geographic isolation, and the role of genetic data in classifying species and determining evolutionary relatedness, this segment is characterized by stunning scenery, local culture, and a close-up look at birds and habitats that few have had the opportunity to see.
