Re: 2,000 of our dino-birds are missing

Saw a documentary years ago about pigeon direction finding.  (What kind of
night could it have been to have seen it all?)  Leader of a project was giving
up, said they'd looked at everything, including compass navigation and could
not understand how the bird could figure out where it was, let alone how to
get back to a place it could not see or otherwise sense directly.
They did a lot of things to confuse the birds...That was why I watched it!
Great minds figuring out ways to confuse a pigeon!  To confuse a pigeon you
have to think like a pgeon, and then confuse yourself.
Many confused scientists, few confused birds.
