Over the past week, we have documented the activity of 800 birds in our research facility to determine their attraction to the AviLighting feeder light. The results were similar to what we’ve been seeing since day one, with one new discovery; birds that are pushed out into darkness manually (running away from a human) will move right back into the feed/water area to return to the light. This indicates that birds are attracted to the light, and furthermore, allows us to get creative with brooding schematics…I.E. we can now test a whole house brood, with no curtains/walls and lights on one side of the house only. This may sound strange, but video evidence shows that birds won’t venture out into the darkness and get lost when food and water readily available in the light.
