Bird feeding project is over

Long months of everyday bird’s feeding, troubles to secure their well-being as much as possible, taking swab samples … all this resulted into the final collection today. Despite we started as early as at 6 am, we kept few people quite busy whole day. Now, the laboratory work will continue in Copenhagen, where Little Katka will go to dissect the birds, and run the molecular analysis of the gut microbial fauna in different parts of the digestive tract. A first obvious results might be, that 80% of birds did not survive longer than 5 weeks on fatty or sugary rich diet.
