Crows Consciously Control Their Calls

PLOS

Crows can voluntarily control the release and onset of their calls, suggesting that songbird vocalizations are under cognitive control, according to a study published August 27 in the open-access journal PLOS Biology by Katharina Brecht of the University of Tübingen, and colleagues.

Newswise: Big Brains or Big Guts: Choose One

Article ID: 717913

Big Brains or Big Guts: Choose One

Washington University in St. Louis

A global study comparing 2,062 birds finds that, in highly variable environments, birds tend to have either larger or smaller brains relative to their body size. Birds with smaller brains tend to use ecological strategies that are not available to big-brained counterparts. Instead of relying on grey matter to survive, these birds tend to have large bodies, eat readily available food and make lots of babies.

Grants Awarded to Land Trusts for Bird Conservation

Cornell University

The Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative has awarded six new grants to support a variety of conservation projects benefiting birds and other species that live in habitats across the country, from grassland, to scrub, forest, and prairie. The Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative was formed in 2013 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Land Trust Alliance.

Newswise: Climate is Changing Faster Than Animal Adaptation

Article ID: 717705

Climate is Changing Faster Than Animal Adaptation

Cornell University

An international team of scientists reviewed more than 10,000 published climate change studies and has reached a sobering conclusion. Birds and other animals cannot adapt fast enough to keep pace with climate change, throwing species survival in doubt.

Conservation or construction? Deciding waterbird hotspots

Michigan State University

MSU scientists show that conservation and construction decisions should rely on multiple approaches to determine waterbird “hotspots,” not just on one analysis method as is often done.

Hummingbird Adaptation in the Andes Reveals New Clues to the Biology of Evolution

Stony Brook University

Genetic changes are necessary for species to evolve and adapt to new environments. However, how can one predict such genetic changes? A new study led by Stony Brook University researchers reveals that this may be possible at a molecular level.

Salt Regulation Among Saltmarsh Sparrows Evolved in Four Unique Ways

Cornell University

A new study in Evolution Letters finds that different bird species in the same challenging environment—the highly saline ecosystem of tidal marshes along ocean shores—were able to evolve unique species-specific ways to address the same problem.

Bird three times larger than ostrich discovered in Crimean cave

Taylor & Francis

A surprise discovery in a Crimean cave suggests that early Europeans lived alongside some of the largest ever known birds, according to new research published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
