Baiz et al. employ whole-genome sequencing across colorful Setophaga warblers to examine genome-wide differentiation between closely related species. Divergence in plumage coloration is mirrored by differentiation at two plumage pigmentation genes, with different evolutionary histories shaped by repeated mutation and introgression.
