How do birds learn through imitation? Scientists have taken a closer look at the brain circuitry in young zebra finches.
Scientists have studied the vocal muscles on Bengalese finches and have found that they can change function to help produce different parameters of sound, similar to a trained opera singer.
A team of researchers have found evidence, which indicates that dinosaurs may have been the original love birds, where they engaged in mating behaviors similar to birds.
Scientists have found how vultures use small-scale turbulence to stay aloft even when weather conditions don't favor the formation of thermals.
Scientists may be getting some new insight into bird migration by combining new techniques.
Removing a dam could mean all the difference for ecosystems
Researchers have captured the first video recording that documents how crows utilize and apply complex tools in the wild.
Animal fur goes grey as they get older, just like human hair. But birds remain vibrant throughout their lives. Now, scientists have found how birds maintain their multi-colored plumage over time.
It turns out wild parrots may actually use tools. Scientists have found new evidence that vasa parrots use a novel technique to acquire calcium from seashells.
The evolution of modern birds was greatly shaped by the history of our planet's geography and climate. Now, scientists are getting a closer look at these changes with the help of DNA evidence.
New research on chickadee species has revealed that southern bird species may be moving far more north than expected. This has important implications as temperatures continue to rise over time.
