Science & Tech  (tags: archaeology, discovery, interesting, research, science, study, birds, flight, tyrannosaurs, brains )

- 1696 days ago -
Some nonavian dinosaurs, including carnivorous tyrannosaurs, may have had brains that were hardwired for flight long before even the earliest known birds started flapping their wings, a new study finds.
Da Vinci-Code, Bird-Style: Cockatoos Can Solve Complex Puzzles
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, birds, cockatoos, cognitive ability, discovery, Goffin Laboratory at Vienna University, interesting, news, science )

- 1720 days ago -
Researchers found that Goffin's cockatoos can complete a complicated sequence of tasks in pursuit of a reward, just like chimpanzees. They have great cognitive ability to innovate solutions. Logged by Sunstroke author David Kagan in Doomwatch Legacy.
Cockatoos Crack Lock-Picking Puzzle
Science & Tech  (tags: scientists, research, birds, Cockatoos, mechanical, puzzle )

- 1722 days ago -
Cockatoos can pick their way through a series of locks to reach a reward, scientists have found. Researchers presented 10 birds with a box containing a cashew nut treat, which they could reach by removing five different interlocking devices.

Science & Tech  (tags: discovery, research, science, scientists, climate, climate change, global warming, birds, migration, environment, study )

- 1752 days ago -
Some songbirds can't alter their migration schedule to take into account earlier, warmer springs as a result of climate change, and that could be deadly, Canadian researchers say.

Science & Tech  (tags: paleontology, research, dinosaurs, origin, flight, birds, evolution )

- 1793 days ago -
Many dinosaurs, like T. rex, had scrawny arms, but paleontologists have discovered that as dinosaurs gradually evolved bigger arms, they began to stand and move more like birds.

Science & Tech  (tags: robots, robotics, birds )

- 1826 days ago -
Robot falcons. Bam. That was the sound of your head exploding because of how cool that is. Sadly, they're not exactly the screeching machines of death from above we've been envisioning (and secretly raising funds for) for years, but they are pretty cool.
High-Speed Evolution: Cars Driving Change In Cliff Swallows
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, birds, evolution, environment, habitat, humans, news, research, science, study )

- 1828 days ago -
I imagine that adjusting to life around humans, with all our buildings and fast-moving transport mechanisms, is tough for a bird. It's estimated that some 80 million birds are killed in motor vehicle collisions every year, and with an ever-growing ...
Humans Are Speeding Up Evolution - Short Video
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, birds, environment, evolution, discovery, habitat, humans, interesting, research, study )

- 1828 days ago -
Birds in Nebraska are evoloving study shows. Cliff Swallows new nesting sites allow them to survive even as their former habitat disappears, but it comes at a cost: by living near roadways, the birds are more at risk than ever of being on the wrong...
Birds May Have Flown Like Four-Winged Kittyhawk
Science & Tech  (tags: archaeology, discovery, interesting, research, science, study, birds, flight )

- 1833 days ago -
The world's first birds all had four wings -- not two -- and flew with a similar construction to the Wright Brothers' Kitty Hawk plane.
Prehistoric Early Birds Flew With 4 Wings
Science & Tech  (tags: ancient, animals, birds, China, discovery, interesting, news, research, science, study, world )

- 1835 days ago -
Scientists determined that some prehistoric birds had adopted the four-wing body plan before ditching the hind-limb feathers in favor of forelimb wings. Important in the evolution of flight, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Songbirds' Brains Coordinate Singing With Intricate Timing
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, birds, discovery, humans, news, research, science, University of Chicago, world )

- 1848 days ago -
As a bird sings, neurons in its brain prepare to make the next sounds while others are synchronized with the current notes--a discovery that sheds light on human speech disorders due to strokes. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author Davd Kagan.
Crows Understand Cause and Effect, Even When the Cause Is Hidden
Science & Tech  (tags: bird study, Crows, research, science, study )

- 2006 days ago -
For the New Caledonian crow, birdbrain is a misnomer: These members of the corvid family have proved their problem-solving and tool-wielding abilities again and again.
Birds Sense Speed to Avoid Crashing
Science & Tech  (tags: Birds, sense, speed, to, avoid, crashing )

- 2335 days ago -
Birds weave rapidly and safely through narrow spaces by sensing how quickly they pass objects along their flight path, an Australian study has found. The discovery could improve the versatility of pilotless aircraft and pave the way for bird-safe buildin
Budgies Have Sense Of Rhythm
Science & Tech  (tags: science, research, language, language-learning process, badgies, birds, parakeet, Japan, University of Tokyo, finding, sense of rhythm )

- 2347 days ago -
Budgerigars have the ability to peck in time with rhythm, a team of Japanese researchers have found - a finding researchers say sheds light on the language-learning process.
