The Science Show which has been an attention-grabbing program in all perspectives rendered a beautiful and emotional incubation call by the mother to its unborn offspring. In the latest broadcast, information on the Zebra Finch, an Australian bird communicating to its embryos was vividly depicted. The mother bird sings to its embryo signaling the right atmosphere to make an entry into the magnanimous world. The embryos have the potential to listen to their mother’s song and they respond appropriately to the stimuli. This song rendered by the mother influences the growth and development of the embryos similar to that of human fetuses.
Zebra finch, one among the songbird species of Australia has tremendous potential to develop song production. It was proved with enough research that the embryos could listen. This song is also considered to be a shield which the mother offers to the embryo to encounter the brood parasitism from cuckoos. Research findings reveal that the mother bird begins to communicate only when the temperature is favorable to hatch. During incubation, both parents are involved. The embryo develops a potential to hear during the last week before hatching. After hatching, the little ones grow and continue to vocalize their mother’s tone.
