Studying smell in homing pigeons

Postby Pajarita » Sat Jul 28, 2018 8:29 am

VERY interesting study! Apparently, homing pigeons use natural smells to help them navigate but artificial smells [of the same scents, mind you] don't work. One more instance where we find that man-made doesn't have the same effect as natural for animals!
