Researchers at the University of Exeter approached the herring lanes on a beach. In half of the trials, they looked towards the ground, and in the other half, they kept staring straight at them. They found that when they reached the Goole without seeing them, they were able to go up to two meters before flying to them.
From the University of Exeter:
Neo-fledgling lanes were likely to react in the direction of human gaze as older birds, suggesting that they are born with this tendency or quickly learn it.
The study, conducted by the University of Exeter, also confirms the widely held view that urban gills are bolder than rural lanes – allowing a person to move closer to 2.5 meters on average before walking or flying.
“Herring gulls are increasingly breeding and breeding in urban areas, and therefore have regular interactions with humans,” said Madeleine Gaumas, lead author of Cornwall at the Center for Ecology and Conservation of Exeter’s Pennyrn campus.
“We know from previous research that if a human is watching, gulls are less likely to peck a bag of chips – but in that experiment the researcher either looked at the gulls or took their head away.
“In our new study, the experimenter approached Gool facing and only changed the direction of his eyes – either looking down or in gaol.
“We wanted to know that the streets pay particular attention to the direction of the human eye, and this is true for teenagers as well as adults – so their opposition to human gaze is with people for months or years. Not the result of negative interactions. ”
The study was conducted in Cornwall, UK, with adult gulls (aged four years or older, evicted by white and brown plumage) and juveniles (born in the year of study, with fully brown plums ) Was targeted.
The findings included a total of 155 lanes: 50 adults and 45 juveniles in urban settlements, and 34 adults and 26 juveniles in rural settlements.
Along with being quick to flee, rural alleys were also more than three times as likely to fly – instead of walking – near a distant human, suggesting they were underutilized.
I once wrote a children’s book (that I had never actually published or anything about Emu’s original story), which I envisioned as being the offspring of two ostriches, each so heartbroken That they had simply become very emotional – hence, Emus. But in my wildest imagination I never fathom […]
Why do beaver juggle? This sounds like a joke, but many beaver often appear to shake the pebble between their hands, an activity that scientists refer to as “juggling”. While veterinarians have thought that it is juggling for animals to practice tricks and pull from meat […]
Darasin is a pheromone found in the urine of male mice. It is used to mark the area and availability of signal mating, and the character was named after Mr. Darcy who appears in Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice. In a new issue of Nature, Columbia University researchers explain how “Darcin” takes hold in the brain […]

Bottom Line – You can’t trust everyone else on the road. This is why dashboard cameras have grown rapidly […]
We all understand the healing powers of music. Snorting on your favorite songs, zoning out, and washing away the extreme sensation on you and taking you away is part of the music’s universal appeal. And the link between music and feeling good is not just an anecdote. In four separate research trials, music therapy was found to be inferior […]
