The most obvious characteristic that sets birds apart from other modern vertebrates is. the presence of feathers, which are modified scales insulation, color patterning, and aiding in the sense of touch. All female mammals produce. milk. Milk is produced from the female mammals. A bird's sense of touch is concentrated in its un-feathered areas.

On the face of it, studying the hearing or tactile sensitivity of birds looks unlikely to yield benefits for humans. Yet discoveries about bird hearing could hold clues to treating deafness and neurodegenerative diseases. And as we learn more about a bird's sense of touch, who knows what practical applications it may inspire.

Sounds familiarAuthor: Tim Birkhead. Touch and vibration The sense of touch is often referred to as the mother of all sensory systems. It is an ancient sense in evolution: even the simplest single-celled organisms can feel when something brushes up against them and will respond by nudging closer or pulling away.

Touch is a kind of non-verbal communication. Start studying Woodward 7th Grade Science - Chapter 12 Birds and Mammals. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

This minimum amount of stimulus is called the absolute threshold.

The absolute threshold is defined as the minimum amount of stimulation necessary for the detection of a stimulus 50% of the time. Absolute threshold is measured by using a method called signal detection.Mammals as well as birds are renowned for being able to detect bad weather and earth tremors approaching.

One possible explanation for this is that they pick up low frequency sounds produced in the air or the ground as a result of the turbulence approaching. Another suggestion is that the can sense vibrations travelling through the earth.
