Veeries very quiet when owls are about


PhysOrg

Recommended Posts

Study shows birds eavesdrop on owls and change their dusk singing patterns to avoid becoming potential prey.

This North American thrush has probably also heard the hoots, and is singing much less to ensure that it does not become an owl's next meal.7voZJPhRHcA
