Navigation postures in Antarctic birds. - S.A. Loparev. Berkut. 10
(2). 2001. - P. 231-233.
Three species of penguins and two other Antarctic bird species reveal postures apparently connected with stars orientation postures previously described by V.R. Dolnik for passerine migrants. Migrating and wandering birds display orientation postures in surroundings unknown for them, mainly in the twilight. Local residents acquainted with the place do not display such orientation postures. Data were collected during wintering on Ukrainian antarctic station Vernadsky (island of Galindez near the northern part of the Antarctic peninsula, 65.15 S, 64.16 W) in season 2000/2001. [Russian].
Key words: navigation, Antarctic, movement.
