DETAILS * Not all songbirds calibrate their magnetic compass from twilight cues: a telemetry study. med./biol.
Chernetsov N, Kishkinev D, Kosarev V, Bolshakov CV (2011), J Exp Biol 214 (Pt 15): 2540 - 2543
Aim: Migratory birds are able to use the sun and associated polarised light patterns, stellar cues and the geomagnetic field for orientation. No general agreement has been reached regarding the hierarchy of orientation cues.
In this study the hypothesis was tested, 1) whether the magnetic compass is calibrated from twilight celestial cues, 2) either magnetic or stellar cues are used separately without transferring reference information to others (simple domination) or 3) whether the stellar compass is calibrated from the magnetic field.
Endpoints: orientation of migratory birds (song trushes)
System: animal (species/strain): song trush (Turdus philomelos)
Exposure: magnetic field, geomagnetic field
