"Sympatric species partition available resources which reduce competition between them."
"On islands where sympatric birds exist, the two species can evolve beaks of different sizes, where one is adapted to larger seeds and the other one to smaller seeds."
"When two sympatric species occupy the same part of a tree, they either consume different-sized insects as food or exist in the thermal microhabitat where one group might be found only in the shade and the other one would be in the sun almost all of the time during the day."
