When it comes to cleverness, you can’t beat these bird brains.
The hoatzin is a very unique bird, a conglomeration of traits typical of birds, reptiles, and mammals. Its most unique features are distinctly un-birdlike.
This article will examine secular literature to rebut the claim that there are no examples of modern-type birds found in Cretaceous rock layers.
Despite all our advances with human flight, we don’t come close to matching the wonder of birds and their feathered flight.
Some birds don’t know when to quit, like the great frigatebird. It’s uniquely designed to stay aloft for weeks without touching the ground.
If you were an unhatched Malleefowl chick, your life would depend on the ability of your parents to incubate their eggs between 29 to 38 degrees Celsius.
The diversity of bird egg shapes spans a wide range from spherical to elliptical with many degrees of asymmetry. Why?
In God’s wise foresight, He equipped the original penguin kind with the genetic information necessary for penguins like the emperor penguin to exist today.
We marvel at birds in flight. But one kind of bird stands apart in its acrobatic talents, with a complex flight system unlike any other.
Seabirds have a special gland that helps them drink seawater. Amazingly, a few other birds can develop this salt gland, as needed.
Try standing barefoot on a pile of snow and see how long you last. Ducks do it all the time and aren’t bothered. How is this possible?
Emperor penguins are among the world’s most recognizable and well-loved birds.
Discovery of placodes on reptile embryos is being seen as proof of the evolutionary connection between reptilian scales, bird feathers, and mammalian hair.
Birds are smarter than primates, according to a study published in a recent issue of PNAS.
How can we better protect athletes from concussions? A newly discovered woodpecker design may help.
Thank you, Lord, for daily reminders of your provision.
When we think of birds, we think of flight. But it appears the Creator had other plans, too.
A bird’s-eye view involves much more than the panoramic view we see from an airplane.
Researchers claim to rewind evolution of bird beaks from dinosaur snouts by blocking beak-building genes to revert embryos to their ancestral state.
We often associate “common” with “ordinary.” But there’s nothing ordinary about pigeons.
Researchers say the “big bang” of bird evolution has been mapped, revealing the history and origin of birds, but they assume all life shares a common ancestry.
The capabilities of these seafaring dive bombers are unmatched in the animal world.
Most birds are blind to sweets. But hummingbirds are experts at telling what is sweet and even fending off fakes.
Bird posture was well-designed from the beginning to support heavy upper bodies by positioning the center of gravity over the feet.
Hummingbirds seem to have been designed specifically to defy evolution.
Biologists have identified the function of what were once considered vestigial structures: the wings of flightless birds.
Turtles, birds, and butterflies had GPS long before humans invented the device. These creatures migrate thousands of miles each year to find food, to find breeding grounds, and to escape harsher seasons. Now scientists may be one step closer to uncovering how this animal navigation system works.
The brilliantly colored bills of toucans aren’t just eye candy. Rather, they play an essential role in helping the birds control their temperature, scientists report.
