Published: 4 June 2020
...Joachim Ostheim; Julia A. M. Delius; Juan D. Delius ABSTRACT The visual control of pecking by pigeons ( Columba livia ) has latterly been thought to be restricted to the fixation stops interrupting their downward head movements because these stops prevent interference by motion blur. Pigeons were...

... and tested electroglottography (EGG) as a novel tool for examining vocal fold kinematics in the avian vocal organ, the syrinx. We furthermore imaged and quantified syringeal kinematics in the pigeon ( Columba livia ) syrinx with unprecedented detail. Our results show that EGG signals predict (1) the relative...
