Similar experiments as described in part I (Wallraff, 1980b) were conducted in Italy. 12 releases at distances of 80–180 km showed, in most cases, similar behaviour of “cueless” transported pigeons and control pigeons, but some gradual difference in the degree of homeward directedness and, at least sometimes, in homing speed. This suggests that, in the area investigated, stimuli perceived during displacement contribute to the orientation behaviour of the birds after release. Usually, however… CONTINUE READING
