Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the methodological study and consequent knowledge of birds with all that relates to them. A wide range of tools and techniques are used in ornithology, both inside the laboratory and out in the field. Most biologists who consider themselves to be “Ornithologists” study specific categories, such as Anatomy, Taxonomy, or Ecology lifestyles and behaviors. — Wikipedia

- Study shows clever birds need caring parentson January 17, 2023 at 5:18 pm
Brains are key organs because they make sense of the world and help us successfully navigate through our lives. While all animals have brains, some species have rather large brains relatively to their body size—and this is very beneficial. A large brain gives species much more flexibility to deal with everyday problems and helps them make better decisions or find innovative solutions. However, brain size (relative to body size) varies tremendously among roughly 10,000 bird species.

Have you ever eaten chicken feet? If you haven't, you might be surprised to learn there's actually quite a bit of flesh down there. And scales too! They're wonderful—and informative—pieces of engineering.
- Crabs have evolved five separate times—why do...on December 6, 2022 at 7:41 pm
Charles Darwin believed evolution created "endless forms most beautiful." It's a nice sentiment but it doesn't explain why evolution keeps making crabs.
- What if the dinosaurs hadn't gone extinct? Why...on November 26, 2022 at 5:10 pm
Sixty-six million years ago, an asteroid hit the Earth with the force of 10 billion atomic bombs and changed the course of evolution. The skies darkened and plants stopped photosynthesising. The plants died, then the animals that fed on them. The food chain collapsed. Over 90% of all species vanished. When the dust settled, all dinosaurs except a handful of birds had gone extinct.
