Data from: Asymmetric visual input and route recapitulation in homing pigeons

, Dora Biro, Tim Guilford, Anna Gagliardo, Alex Kacelnik & Antone Martinho
Pigeons (Columba livia) display reliable homing behaviour, but their homing routes from familiar release points are individually idiosyncratic and tightly recapitulated, suggesting that learning plays a role in route establishment. In light of the fact that routes are learned, and that both ascending and descending visual pathways share visual inputs from each eye asymmetrically to the brain hemispheres, we investigated how information from each eye contributes to route establishment, and how information input is shared...
