There is so much about birds to find fascinating: their behaviors, their intelligence, their songs, their nest building, their ability to fly. These characteristics have all evolved to help birds thrive in diverse environments and have contributed to their becoming among the most widespread of the earth's creatures.
Birds also intrigue us with their many colors and forms. Check out the birds of any Central or South American country. You will be amazed by the sheer variety of stunning hues. Birds use their feathers as camouflage. During courtship rituals, they also preen, pose, and spread their wings and tails to attract a compatible mate.
People are often surprised by how intelligent birds are. However, many experiments have shown that birds can display complex learned behaviors based on social experiences and trust.
Some bird species play games to help them hone flying and hunting skills to catch their prey. Juvenile falcons practice prey-grasping and dropped-prey recovery techniques with sticks and pine cones that they tear from tree branches.
For smaller birds, flying also serves as a critical survival function. Birds are brilliant exponents of the dodge-and-weave strategy to avoid attacks.
Another really extraordinary feature of birds is their song. Each bird species has a distinctive set of sounds that help to differentiate it. Songs and calls serve various purposes, but the main reason for birds' primary songs is the establishment of nesting territories. Like that of the Wood Thrush, some bird songs are lovely to listen to, while others are barely more than chirping.
Perhaps the mockingbirds are the most accomplished and astonishing songsters of all American birds. This is because so many can remember and regurgitate thousands of sounds. This wide variety of sounds is another reason people find birds fascinating.
When you consider how birds combine all these survival functions into a single, sometimes fragile-looking life-form, it's easy to realize why people are so intrigued.
