The Cute Songbirds (Passeri or Oscines) are Ornithology a subordination of passerine birds (Passeriformes). The largest of the approximately 4000 species of more than 60 cm of length raven. The body of Cute Songbirds is aligned on the fly and thus a fast movement in the air. In addition, her body is also specialized in singing. The singing of Cute Songbirds is in the lower larynx (syrinx), where the trachea bifurcates into the two main bronchi formed. When singing the male stretches his neck, takes a deep breath and sings from “full throttle”. The tones are generated by membranes tense and vibrations are added. This is only possible when you exhale.

Cute Songbirds have a field of vision of 300 ° to 320 °, by using their lateral location eyes can move independently in different directions. With this sight, they are able to perceive all the things, lateral and angular happened before them behind them. Cute Songbirds are able to distinguish colors.

The hearing of Cute Songbirds is very pronounced. The lower limit of audibility is 1500 Hz and the upper at 29000 Hz. Some members of this subordination may also differ very fast rhythm patterns, store them in memory and play. The Tonunterscheidungsvermögen of Cute Songbirds is so pronounced that they can distinguish sounds that differ by only 0.3 percent in the amount of one another. In addition, they can at about 20 ° recognize exactly where a sound is coming.

Cute Songbirds have a delicate balance organ, located in the inner ear. You can keep on slender branches in the air balance. Not particularly well developed is their sense of smell and taste that you sense. Whether food is suitable for eating, opt for the eyes corpuscles of the beak edges. Though not particularly well, so Cute Songbirds can taste it. In addition, not all of the same type have the same Schmeckvermögen Cute Songbirds.

The Cute Songbirds are over 90 families and about 4,000 described species, the largest species of the birds. Your inner systematics was a long time in the dark and is still controversial. Sibley and Ahlquist 1990 published on DNA hybridization based new bird systematics, in which they shared the Cute Songbirds into two subgroups, which they called parvorder.

The origin of Cute Songbirds appears in the late Cretaceous period (calculated using the molecular clock ) to lie in the Australian-oceanic clearance, since only there occur the basal families. After Australia as part of the continental drift had approached Southeast Asia, they spread out to the north. The “Passerida” are the result of radiation from Cute Songbirds to the north continents.

Passerines are compared to the representatives of other families rather small birds. The body length ranges from eight ( Firecrest ) up to 120 ( Birds of Paradise ) centimeters. Many passerines high latitudes are migratory birds, migratory birds are found, however, mainly in the nature of subtropics and tropics. The latter include the species in the families of Lyrebirds or the Callaeidae in which the power of flight is weak.

The vast number of passerine birds eats invertebrates or plants seeds, often both. Exceptions to this general rule include some predominantly in the rainforest are families living on which the birds of paradise, the Manakin and Cotingas count. They feed almost exclusively on fruits. The Strangler, however, are predators that in addition to large insects and small vertebrates such as lizards and mice prey. crossbills have populations than adult birds almost exclusively of conifers seed. They are thus adapted to their diet, that their bill is crossed and they are thus able to seed as with a pair of tweezers to remove from cones. The dippers diving in shallow and fast flowing streams for insects. They are the only passerine birds with this capability.

The sparrows are now divided into three suborders. The basal, New Zealand Maori panties (Acanthisitti) are the sister group of all other passerines. The remaining share in the Tyranni (Tyranni) which has a simple built lower larynx have, and Cute Songbirds (Passeri) whose Syrinx is designed so that it can produce a variety of sounds. In total, there are about 5,700 species of passerine birds.
