Stringing together meaningless sounds in order to create meaningful ones was once thought to be a human trait alone. Now, scientists have discovered that a species of bird, babbler birds, can also communicate this way.
Seabirds are abandoning their ancestral nesting grounds in the Gulf of California in record numbers. Now, scientists may have found out why. Researchers have found that climate change may be to blame.
It turns out that pet owners have problems facing their cat's kill count. Scientists have looked at the attitudes of pet owners and have found that many simply ignore how much their cats hunt.
Researchers may have unearthed the egg of an extremely rare species-in a museum drawer. Scientists have found an egg from a plover-like species that may be one of a kind.
Scientists may have discovered why parrots are so good at imitating sounds. They've uncovered key structural differences in the brains of parrots that may explain the birds' ability to imitate human speech.
New findings published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B reveal that brain regions for central cognitive processing in social insect species actually shrank over time--the opposite pattern seen with sociality in other vertebrate animals, including mammals, birds and fish.
We apparently haven't learned from Jurassic Park. The renowned paleontologist, Dr. Jack Horner, is spearheading genetic research that could potentially engineer dinosaurs back into existence within the next 10 years.
It turns out that tiny birds may be able to warn others of an approaching predator in order to avoid being preyed upon themselves.
Climate change is continuing to heat things up. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at how seabirds are impacted by changing temperatures.
Are yawns contagious? They are for humans, dogs and chimpanzees. Until now, though, researchers didn't realize that contagious yawning could also occur between member bird species.
3D printing has been moving forward by leaps and bounds and now, scientists have used it to create something a bit unusual: artificial eggs.
Monk parakeets have invaded Europe and North America, creating massive communal nests on top of utility poles. Now, scientists have traced the origins of these birds and have found that many appear to be from the same small area in South America.
