ABSTRACT

To study the relative importance of piloting by familiar landmarks compared to navigation using a ‘map’ and a compass at familiar sites, 6 h slow shifted pigeons were released under sun at locations from which they had homed more than 60 times before. They showed the typical ca. 90 ° clockwise deviation from the mean of the controls indicating the use of the sun compass. These findings show that even at very familiar sites the home direction is determined as a compass direction. There is no evidence for piloting, i.e. following chains of familiar landmarks. Another use of landmarks, however, namely their use to recognize a location where the home course is known from previous experience, appears possible. More... »
