To the scientifically minded out there, is there a possibility that a
species restricted virus can be created that wipes out a species, in much
the same way that Calici virus kills rabbits? I was thinking that maybe a
virus could be created for sparrows, blackbirds, song thrushes, bulbuls,
mynas, Mallard ducks, etc.
P.S:this is not a sarcastic question
