Jackdaws protect their nests 'with eyes'

2 posts in this topic

Researchers from the University of Cambridge, UK, tested whether the dark birds' striking blue-white eyes help them to protect nest sites.

They found that jackdaws avoided nest boxes when they could see the eyes of a jackdaw inside.

Experts suggest this is the first evidence that bright eyes could act as signals in the bird world.
