Is this really possible for birds? I never knew this. I'm hoping the answer is "yes," because I'd like to make it an anatomical feature in one of the loquent races in my conworld. I've included some other anatomical features in various loquent beings such as: 1. The flea's mechanism for jumping very high. 2. The ability to see ultraviolet & infrared. 3. The tapetum for increased visual acuity. 4. Gills. 5. hollow bones such as birds have. Charlie
