New Research: Pigeons Might ”Hear” Magnetic Fields

Pigeons might have an in-built GPS system, new research suggests. David Dickman and Le-Qing Wu examined how pigeons (Columba livia) navigate. They published their findings in the journal Science.

Dickman and Wu believe that the pigeon’s inner ear receives signals from Earth’s magnetic field. The bird’s cells interpret where the signal comes from and how strong it is.

The navigation skills of birds are strong evidence of creation.

It is not logical to assume that such intricate systems would have come about without intelligent design.
