ManyBirds is a multi-site collaborative Open Science approach that aims to provide new insight into the evolution of avian cognition and behavior through large-scale comparative studies, following the lead of exemplary ManyPrimates, ManyBabies and ManyDogs projects. We are open to collaboration across all sites, including labs, zoos, field and home.
