Cousin of the 21st century: Tringa ochropus, the Green Sandpiper. Size: 40 cm high.
Etymology: Tringapterus is a contraction of "Tringa" and "wingless" means "Green Sandpiper without wings"; "Daftpunki" is a tribute to Daft punk, a French electronic music duo whose artists share with our bird the same light and the same helmet future singing that unites these species.
Distribution: Large Eurafrican mud flats, as well as coastal lake.Ecology and Reproduction: Chum herds, Green Sandpiper future (such Tringapterus) will never move without the neo-ostrich. Well tolerated by Neo-ostriches (Struthiops philipkdicki), these smaller, dark birds move in jerks, always at the center of the herd. The Tringapterus live in groups and developed a complex song, strange music that allows them to communicate with their associates. Not content to benefit from their protection, "Green Sandpipers the future" go elsewhere to lay eggs in the nests of neo-ostriches. Tringapterus elegans and Tringapterus daftpunki are two species of the Euro-African coast. One, Northern, can hybridize with each other, more southern, but the young are unfertile. Sexual dimorphism is marked: male, very dominant, feature of ridges vivid and varied colors. Taking advantage of the low tide, these little birds partegent with their bodyguard, the resources the coast: the Struthiops philipkdicki raking seaweed illuminated canvases that Tringapterus probe the mud in search of neo-shrimp, worms and other small prey including they feed. At the coast however, both these birds will have predators, like Neocidaris schwarzenheggeri.
