Researchers have found that New Zealand's bellbird can change nesting habits to adjust to predators.
Researchers from the University of Canterbury in Australia observed the birds and found out that mother bellbirds spend more time around the next when predators are nearby. The research team also found that all bellbirds make fewer trips away from the nest to prevent drawing attention to themselves.
Many birds native to New Zealand and other islands have been brought to extinction by predators.
