  1. The effect providing space in excess of standards on the behaviour of budgerigars in aviaries

    Contributor(s):: Phillips, Clive J. C., Farrugia, Cameron, Lin, Chun-han, Mancera, Karen, Doneley, Bob

    Budgerigars housed in conventional cages have no opportunity for some normal behaviours, in particular flight, and develop stereotyped behaviours. Increasingly aviaries are used for groups of budgerigars but the minimum space requirement to support normal behaviour is not known. We compared the...

  2. Wildlife strikes with U.S. military rotary-wing aircraft deployed in foreign countries

    Contributor(s):: Washburn, Brian E., Cisar, Paul J., DeVault, Travis L.

  3. Refinement of biomarker pentosidine methodology for use on aging birds

    Contributor(s):: Cooey, C. K., Fallo, J. A., Avery, M. L., Anderson, J. T., Falkenstei, E. A., Klandorf, H.

  4. The effects of radar on avian behavior: implications for wildlife management at airports

    Contributor(s):: Sheridan, E., Randolet, J., DeVault, T. L., Seamans, T. W., Blackwell, B. F., Fernandez-Juricic, E.

    Airports often contain foraging, breeding, and roosting resources for wildlife. Airports also have different types of radars to assist with air traffic control, monitoring weather, and tracking wildlife that could become a risk for collision with aircraft. The effect of radar electromagnetic...

  5. Estimation of red-winged blackbird mortality from toxic bait application

    Contributor(s):: James F. Glahn, Michael L. Avery

    Application of slow-acting toxic bait is one method of reducing local populations of depredating blackbirds. Estimating numbers of birds killed in such baiting operations is difficult because affected birds die off-site and are seldom recovered. We conducted bioassays and flight pen studies of...

  6. Bird consumption of sweet and tart cherries

    Contributor(s):: Lindell, C. A., Eaton, R. A., Lizotte, E. M., Rothwell, N. L.

  7. Bird strikes and aircraft fuselage color: a correlational study

    Contributor(s):: Fernandez-Juricic, E., Gaffney, J., Blackwell, B. F., Baumhardt, P.

  8. The welfare and suitability of parrots as companion animals: a review

    Contributor(s):: Engebretson, M.

  9. Wildlife risk to aviation: a multi-scale issue requires a multi-scale solution

    Contributor(s):: Martin, J. A., Belant, J. L., Devault, T. L., Blackwell, B. F., Burger, L. W., Jr., Riffell, S. K., Wang, G.

  10. The effects of cage volume and cage shape on the condition and behaviour of captive European starlings ( Sturnus vulgaris )

    Contributor(s):: Asher, L., Davies, G. T. O., Bertenshaw, C. E., Cox, M. A. A., Bateson, M.

    Cage size is widely recognised as an important determinant of captive animal welfare, but in contrast, cage shape has received far less attention. Husbandry recommendations for flying birds state that cages should be long in shape because this allows greater potential for flight. However, so far...

  11. Threat assessment by domestic ducklings using visual signals: implications for animal-machine interactions

    Contributor(s):: Henderson, J. V., Wathes, C. M., Nicol, C. J., White, R. P., Lines, J. A.

    There are increasing opportunities for robots to work amongst animals in agricultural systems. One potential application is in herding animals prior to catching or transportation. An effective herding robot must be able to interrupt ongoing animal behaviour without causing panic or flight...

  12. Effects of obstructed take-off and landing perches on the flight accuracy of laying hens

    Contributor(s):: Moinard, C., Rutherford, K. M. D., Haskell, M. J., McCorquodale, C., Jones, R. B., Green, P. R.

    Laying hens housed in extensive systems may be at risk of injury when many birds compete for use of the same perch space. Experiments were carried out to determine the space required by laying hens to move between obstructed perches. Eighty Lohmann Brown layer hens were reared in floor pens...
