Angry Birds IRL? Cities Linked To Avian Aggression
One does not have to go far to look for angry birds. A research made by the team of Virginia tech had found out that birds residing in the urban area or cities are more inclined to aggression compared to its rural counterparts.
The group had studied 35 urban and 38 rural male sparrows in two different locations: in the rural area of New River Valley and on campus, at Radford University. A recording of a male song sparrow had been played through speakers on both campuses.
Once the recording had started, the urban birds had flocked the speaker. They were agitated to the point of flapping their wings angrily near the speakers. In contrast, rural birds were off the speaker. Their response was not as significant as the birds residing in the city.
The research had brought about the theory on how location affects the way birds behave. The behavioral aspect of these birds was studied with the intent to check how these species survive in urbanized areas. This study will help plunge forward an answer on how our animals would survive in the following decades.
Urban birds tend to be hostile since they have less space to dwell on. However, they are able to access more resources for shelter and food. These birds behave with the need to continuously and vigorously defend for these resources consistently with or without a threat.
On the other hand, rural birds have to look for their own food in a vast area where they can fly around. This environment makes them feel secured.
The findings of the study had sparked a firmer view of how urbanization impacted the behavior and the culture of species like birds. There has been a marked difference of how they approach this change and how they are able to adapt to it.
