... small the deviations from horizontal or vertical inclination are that migratory birds can detect and use as a reference for their magnetic compass. Here, we asked: what is the steepest inclination angle at which a migratory bird, the Eurasian blackcap ( Sylvia atricapilla ), can still perform magnetic...

... to demonstrate adaptive hypothermic responses in migrating passerines. While monitoring body temperature ( T b ) of eight blackcaps ( Sylvia atricapilla ) by radiotelemetry, we found that during daytime T b =42.5±0.4°C (mean ±s.d.); at night T b decreased to a minimum between 33 and 40°C. We determined the lower...

...Henrik Mouritsen; Ole Næsbye Larsen SUMMARY This paper investigates how young pied flycatchers, Ficedula hypoleuca , and blackcaps, Sylvia atricapilla , interpret and use celestial cues. In order to record these data, we developed a computer-controlled version of the Emlen funnel, which enabled us...
