...Cordula V. Mora; Jeremy D. Ross; Peter V. Gorsevski; Budhaditya Chowdhury; Verner P. Bingman SUMMARY Considerable efforts have been made to investigate how homing pigeons ( Columba livia f. domestica ) are able to return to their loft from distant, unfamiliar sites while the mechanisms underlying...

... compared the homing performances of homing pigeons that fly singly and in groups of three. Our findings show that although small groups were either governed (i.e. when individuals in the flock had age differences) or not (i.e. when individuals in the flock had the same age) by leaders, with concern...

...Richard A. Holland SUMMARY The question of whether homing pigeons use visual landmarks for orientation from distant, familiar sites is an unresolved issue in the field of avian navigation. Where evidence has been found, the question still remains as to whether the landmarks are used independent...

...Dora Biro; Tim Guilford; Giacomo Dell'Omo; Hans-Peter Lipp SUMMARY Providing homing pigeons with a 5 min preview of the landscape at familiar sites prior to release reliably improves the birds' subsequent homing speeds. This phenomenon has been taken to suggest that the visual panorama is involved...

... direction. When released at a distant site, homing pigeons (Columba livia) raised in deflector lofts exhibit a shift in orientation relative to controls which corresponds to the clockwise or counterclockwise rotation of winds in their loft, suggesting the involvement of wind-borne olfactory cues in pigeon...
