Studying bird evolution has led to engineering innovations, including drones that can fly sideways and backwards, and silent wind turbines.
Powerful owls need old, hollowed-out trees to nest in, but humans keep chopping them down. Now, designers have partnered up with ecologists to build them high tech artificial nests.
Scientists have discovered how the wise old barn owl is so good at catching rodents.
Not all birds have eyes on the sides of their heads – but even those that do can see straight in front of them.
