University of St Andrews, St Andrews, U.K. (Science Direct): Animals can learn to revisit locations at which foraging resources will renew over time. This ability is known as ‘time–place’ learning. Although there is clear evidence for time–place learning from animals trained and tested in the laboratory, not all species learn time–place tasks with similar ease. Since hummingbirds feed from food sources that are constant in space and that renew with time, it seems plausible these birds might learn time–place associations and do so readily.
