Every man at least once, but wondered about why the Sparrow does not go, and jumps. This, of course, has his reasons. And is about to tell them.

why the Sparrow does not go and jumping

Legend

Why the Sparrow does not go, and jumps, often cited to justify the myth. You should first pay attention to this, and then turn to science.

So, there is a legend that one day the Sparrow was badly hurt Jesus Christ himself. Supposedly this bird was “supplier” the nails for the crucifixion of the son of God. And constantly tweeting: “are You still alive?”, “Suffer? Be patient”. And other glee. Then God in all ages cursed passerine family, even forbidding people to eat their meat. And concluded the legs of all the birds in the invisible shackles. It is because of them sparrows supposedly can't walk, and they have to move by jumping.

why go pigeons and sparrows hop

Scientific explanation

A Parable is interesting, but it's better to refer to the official version explaining why the Sparrow does not go, and jumps.

It All comes down to the biological characteristics of birds. A Sparrow weighs approximately 23-35 grams. And its body length does not exceed 16 inches. And the main reason why the bird “jump”, is its proportionality. The ratio of the body and tail are equal, because the Sparrow can move in this way. But there is another reason explaining why the Sparrow does not go, and jumps. It – birds, leading a sedentary life, and living in tree and shrub plantings. They can say, born with jumping from one branch to another.

And yet these birds muscle, controlled by the feet, is steam. When Sparrow moves one limb, followed by the second. So that the move is “walking” this bird is simply not capable of. Anyway, paws is a Sparrow too short. Because even if these birds could walk, they have failed to keep the balance.

which bird jump like a Sparrow

Interesting facts

It is Also worth to tell about why pigeons walk, and sparrows hop. With the latter, however, everything is clear. And what about the pigeons?

You Should go back to proportionality. The dove tail is smaller and lighter than his body. Because it is more convenient to move a step. And yet these birds long knee, because of which they can not “ride”. But they could do that. You can watch the dove, which from the highway jumps onto the sidewalk pedestrian zone. Such a sight to meet easy – literally in every yard. And if you look closely, you can see that before you make the leap, the bird is slightly "squats" to better push off the ground. It turns out it is not as easy as for the younger brother.

And finally, we should talk about what birds hop about like a Sparrow. They are tit and Redstart. The first of these the dimensions are very similar to sparrows. Redstart is quite tiny-the length is only 10 cm So that the weight come off, and the structure is the same as in Sparrow. Because of this plan all over again is determined by biology.

By the Way, “irregular” can move magpies. Their length can reach two feet, and weighs about 200-230 grams. But again, the body she is proportional. And magpies usually go on jumps, if you want to accelerate.
