Birds in general and songbirds in particular are primarily known for their elaborate songs and/or conspicuous plumage coloration but not for their sense of smell. Probably because of the dominance of the acoustic and visual senses and the absence of any odour-guided behaviour, it has been assumed that birds lack a sense of smell.
