Mystery Hour Question

Why do Pigeons bob their heads?

Answer

Name:  Professor Martin

Qualification: Professor of robotics, Middlesex university

Answer: Pigeons only have a small brain. It is trying to keep its eyes still as it moves forwards and eventually its head can’t go back far enough so it has to bob the head forward keeping its head stationary relative to the scene. It’s trying to make the scene not be blurred by movement.
