let us say that the pigeons can do the following things -
1. sense changes in earth's mag field
2. see light waves
3. detect low frequencies
4. sense changes in air-pressure
5. identify familiar odors.

the use of "can" in both options A and B is redundant.

I'm also supporting C. A is what someone would pick if they were trying to make both sides of and be the same, but since the sentence is a list there is no need to put "can" after and.

(C) sense changes in air pressure, and identify familiar odors
(D) air pressure changes can be sensed, and familiar odors identified
(E) air pressure changes are sensed, and familiar odors identified


A list is presented as below -

Researchers at Cornell University have demonstrated that homing pigeons can
    sense changes in the earth’s magnetic field,
    see light waves that people cannot see,
    detect low-frequency sounds from miles away,
    sense changes in air pressure, and
    identify familiar odors

All the parts are parallel, hence answer must be (C)
