Lol, I feed birdies on my balcony. they will have their breakfast , lunch and dinner on my balcony. inbetween their meall times they disappear out of sight, but always home in at their appointed mealtimes. so how do these birdies navigate? as i have been a pilot in the past, to navigate in the air you need a compass. right or left of this or that does not work. so these birdies ought to have a built in biological flux gate compasses in their brain and it is my belief that if you put atmosphere on the moon and some birdies, they will not be able to navigate themselves on the moon.
what do you all say.

yep, I feed the wild birds like doves and crows come in all year....they disappear and make rounds elsewhere during their absence....

but I need help figuring out where the roadrunners go in winter.....they seem to go off-planet, I swear....early spring now.....they're suddenly sneaking back....

I say:

I wish people who can't tell the difference between science and scrambled eggs would stop making threads in the Science & Technology Forum.

That's what I say.

You know its almost time for a midnight snack in my parts and fortunately I have some cheddar cheese to mix with my scrabbled eggs.




Magnetoreception is a sense which allows an organism to detect a magnetic field to perceive direction, altitude or location. This sensory modality is used by a range of animals for orientation and navigation,[1] and as a method for animals to develop regional maps. For the purpose of navigation, Magnetoreception deals with the detection of the Earth's magnetic field.

Magnetoreception is present in bacteria, arthropods, mollusks and members of all major taxonomic groups of vertebrates.[1] Magnetoreception in humans is controversial.

I would recommend one review the "TCB Publications" in the second link offered in my last response.

It's a really complex, amazing system that takes many things into account - like sky polarization...


Behold!

I reckon they just use local landmarks to navigate between their nests and Nochzwei’s feeder.
