How Do Birds Learn to Walk?
Birds can walk and jump, or both. Turtledoves and doves walk by staggering feet one after another on the ground. Sparrows and babblers living in the bush can only jump with two feet at the same time. Mynahs and crows can walk and jump. Woodpeckers can jump upward along the trunk of a tree but they can't do this with head down. Nuthatch can not only walk upward along the tree trunks, they can also go downward. Tree creepers can climb spirally upward along the trunk of a tree.
