Birds and Color
Name: Mike B.
I am doing an experiment to see if birds are attracted to
certain colors, one bird feeder is yellow, red, and green. are there any
articles or research done on the subject to compare my findings to?
There are hundreds (probably thousands) of articles on what effects colors
have on bird behavior. Color is quite important to bird behavior, both
feeding and in "mating"...that's one reason birds (usually males) have
bright colors. Remember that Ornithology is the study of birds.
