The skylight polarization patterns at dusk affect the orientation behavior of blackcaps,Sylvia atricapilla


Avian nocturnal migrants have been shown to use a variety of orientat ional cues to select their migratory direction [11. Recently, Able [21 and Moore [31 called at tention to another relevant orientation factor: skylight polarization. At sunrise and sunset, a band of maximally polarized light with its evector perpendicular to the sun azimuth runs through… (More)
