Cornell researchers have found that zebra finches don’t simply learn their songs by imitating adults: They learn by watching their mothers’ reactions to their immature songs.
The researchers identified tiny movements, imperceptible to the human eye, made by female zebra finches to encourage baby songbirds. These included wing gestures and “fluff-ups,” an arousal behavior in which the bird fluffs up its feathers.
