Location Physical Space Behavioral Research Aviaries Marlboro College Vermont
Comments Studying the Danphe Monal and Chir Pheasants through Vermont's long winters and adjacent seasons enabled a glimpse into how the species forage in deep snow, and preferences of perching through inclimate weather. The birds were held in thirty and twenty five foot tall aviarys, the largest, more than four thousand square feet.
