Science and sexism in birds

Postby Pajarita » Mon Sep 30, 2019 9:22 am

This is not about parrots but about songbirds (which parrots are not) but I thought it was VERY interesting -mostly because this is something that I have been exposed to from an early age with canaries and never actually made the connection about it even though I am a hard nose feminist :lol:

PS Actually, in canaryculture, females that sing are VERY appreciated and valuable because they pass their super strong song genes to their offspring.
