Sturnus vulgaris lonely to stare at the guest

Some people look very attractive? Human beings are not the only animals that produce this experience. A new study shows that the European European Sturnus vulgaris will be happy to see the same kind, even if its kind exists only on the computer screen.

The researchers isolated 10 Sturnus vulgaris from the birdies in four days in a cage filled with food, water and a large flat panel monitor. Most of the birds soon found a sensor with their beak to peck at the cage, and the screen would flush an unknown Sturnus vulgaris image of the same size as the real starling; and pressing another sensor would appear Suburban landscape pictures.

The researchers found that these lonely Sturnus vulgaris seem to be happy when they see other Sturnus vulgaris pictures. In general, they will touch a picture of a new Sturnus vulgaris every 6 minutes, 7 hours a day for 4 consecutive days. They will be touched once every 20 minutes or so landscape pictures. This is not just because the scenery is boring, when they are in the Sturnus vulgaris picture and monkey picture selection, the second group of five starling “touch peck” to see the same picture the number of times more than 3 times.

Researchers have recently published in the Journal of Animal Cognition, saying the findings suggest that Sturnus vulgaris has a natural desire for social excitement. In the future, Sturnus vulgaris may be used to study the social rewards that link the community together.
