New research has decoded the family tree for birds. Researchers have taken a closer look at both extinct species and ones still alive today to better understand the stunning variety of bird species.
It might be all in the name of science, but that doesn't mean that there isn't controversy. A scientist discovered a rare bird that hadn't been seen in over a century, and then killed it for a museum collection.
A well preserved, 125-million-year-old bird wing found in central Spain helped researchers to determine the evolution of flight, according to a recent study.
New study reveals ravens to be the most intelligent species of birds, and they can tell who is cheating when they are cooperating.
A tiny, ancient fossil may be telling researchers a bit more about the birds that existed during the time of the dinosaurs.
It turns out that magnetism may have more of a role to play in bird migration than once expected. Scientists have found new evidence that reed warblers rely on a geomagnetic map to point them in the right direction.
Most people are aware that ticks carry diseases. But did you know that these diseases can spread thousands of miles?
Now, you can watch one of the most epic migrations of animals of the Serengeti.
Do you put out a feeder for the birds in your yard? You may want to think twice before you do so.
The Carpenters had it right. In other words, birds may have something to do with love (they "suddenly appear..." as the song goes.) Or is it that they simply fall in love--just like humans--as well.
More intensive farming practice may seem like a bad thing for the environment. Now, though, researchers have found that intensive farming practices may be better for tropical birds.
Could butterflies hold the key to developing new highly selective gas detection sensors? New findings published in Nature Communications reveal that pioneering new research by a team of international stientists at the University of Exeter have replicated the surface chemistry found in the iridescent...
