Wed 30 Oct 2013 6.30pm here in Blackwell’s.
What is it like to be a swift, flying at 100km an hour? What’s going on inside the head of a nightingale as it sings? Our affinity for birds is often said to be the result of shared senses – vision and hearing – but how do their senses compare with ours? What about a bird’s sense of taste, smell, or the ability to detect the Earth’s magnetic field?
