Australian birds attract mates with 'scary movie effect' Using a horror film to bring your date closer is a classic move in the teenage playbook. Now, a study of Australian birds finds that other animals use the same "scary movie effect" to attract female attention, by hitchhiking mating signals onto the calls of predators.

Video: Wolves Brought Into Yellowstone Park – Nobody Expected This Would Be The Outcome We are all interconnected, not only with each other but with everything. All in nature is alive, it’s life, and all beings on the planet give balance to various cycles mother Earth goes through. When we start jeopardizing these things, and we have, nature becomes out of balance, we do however have the potential to fix and restore the damage that we’ve done to our planet, but we must do it now. Now is our chance to change the direction we were previously heading. This video is a great example of what I am talking about. Take a look, and know the sacredness of all life and how it’s connected to everything else.

Study Catches Two Bird Populations As They Split Into Separate Species A new study finds that a change in a single gene has sent two closely related bird populations on their way to becoming two distinct species. The study, published in the August issue of the American Naturalist, is one of only a few to investigate the specific genetic changes that drive two populations toward speciation. Speciation, the process by which different populations of the same species split into separate species, is central to evolution. But it's notoriously hard to observe in action. This study, led by biologist J. Albert Uy of Syracuse University, captures two populations of monarch flycatcher birds just as they arrive at that evolutionary crossroads.

Birds With Child-care Assistance Invest Less In Eggs An Australian bird has been found to produce smaller, less nourishing eggs when it breeds in the presence of other 'helper' birds that provide child-care assistance. This unique adaptation enables the birds to live longer and breed more often than females without helpers. The research, led by a University of Cambridge academic, was published in Science. In many animal species, parents caring for their offspring are assisted by so-called 'helpers', adults that forego reproduction to help others raise young. Although parents decrease the amount of food they provide to offspring when helpers are present, the additional supply provided by the helpers more than compensates for this reduction.
