In four experiments, pigeons were trained to find hidden food at a constant location with respect to one or two arrays of landmarks. On crucial tests, the birds were presented with conflicting cues associated with two different directions, which were 90° apart from the center of the search space at the same radial distance. The direction-averaging model predicts that the radial distance of search should not change on these tests, compared with radial distance of search on control tests without conflicting cues. The vector-averaging (vector sum) model predicts that when pigeons average the two conflicting cues, the radial distance of search should be shorter. Results support the direction-averaging model and suggest that distance and direction are independently computed in landmark-based search. Multiple sources are averaged by pigeons in determining direction.
