The Social Bird icon set - The First Inspired Release | Inspired Magazine

Well, we kinda felt the time has come for the first Inspired Release. In the same time, we saw many of our readers blogs are using too generic icons for their Twitter widgets, so we came up with a brilliant idea – why not ask our favorite artists to draw a bird icon in their...

Photographs of albatross chicks which were made on Midway Atoll. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

Culture May Be Encoded in DNA | Wired Science
"Mitra’s team wanted to find out what would happen if an isolated bird raised his own colony. As expected, birds raised in soundproof boxes grew up to sing cacophonous songs. But then scientists let the isolated birds give voice lessons to a new round of hatchlings. They found that the young males imitated the songs — but they tweaked them slightly, bringing the structure closer to that of songs sung in the wild. When these birds grew up and became tutors, their pupils’ song continue to conform, with tweaks. After three to four generations, the teachers were producing strapping young finches that belted out normal-sounding songs."
A very cool study, and a well-written article.
GReader: Culture May Be Encoded in DNA [feedly] [from]
Knowledge is passed down directly from generation to generation in the animal kingdom as parents teach their children the things they will need to survive. But a new study has found that, even when the chain is broken, nature sometimes finds a way. Zebra finches, which normally learn their complex courtship songs from their fathers, spontaneously developed the same songs all on their own after only a few generations. | Unique Bird Photography | Bird Art

An ordinary bird feeder, an ordinary day: and the ordinary, beautiful, eternal ballet of survival, flight, and falling, the aerial acrobats forever in motion, a rush of speed and feathers past the wondering human eye. spacer
