Explore The New Aviary Facility

Our new avian is a unique facility with 16 replicated aviary rooms. We can conduct experiments and replicate them in statistically robust designs. Each room can house a small flock of songbirds, such as finches, sparrows, and starlings, or can house family groups of species like wood ducks so we can observe pairs raising their young. Other features include partial roofing of each room with an outer, mesh-enclosed area so the birds can experience daylight cycles and natural temperature changes, but remain sheltered from extreme weather.
