Garden warblers are able to learn an association between time of day and feeding place. In constant dim light and constant food availability, the learned feeding pattern (successive visits to four feeding rooms for approximately 3 hr each) persisted for at least 1 day in three birds and for at least 6 days in one bird. The free-running feeding rhythm had a period of slightly greater than 23 hr. In response to a 6-hr phase advance of the light-dark cycle, the birds advanced their learned feeding… CONTINUE READING
