With a little assistance from streetlights, the early bird catches the female's favor
Light pollution may give certain male songbirds a reproductive edge, according to German scientists who have been studying small birds called blue tits for the past decade.
The scientists found that males living near roads illuminated by streetlights along the edges of a forest were more successful at mating with more than one female than those living in the heart of the forest.
