Some choice quotes to pique your interest...
  • All of the animals that we share this planet with have evolved to experience time at a different scale, speed, and resolution than we do.
  • Avians generally have much higher CFF numbers (relative to humans at 60).
  • My ducks... have a CFF of about 105, about a 75% increase from humans, meaning that they experience reality almost painfully slow for how chill their life is.
  • Smaller song birds... have a CFF of up to 145... what is almost a bewildering speed for me, is much more nuanced-looking to them. What's more interesting to me, is how they hear the world, specifically their songs.
I'm going to let this digest for a bit to consider how this insight might be leveraged to improve our relationships with our birds, and their life in our care.

I'm not going to pretend I understand all of it but it was interesting to see different animals see and hear.
