So out of the five feeders of orange, red, green, blue, and white that were put out the orange was favored the most. We could learn a lot from this experiment because it is still hard for us to imagine how birds perceive color. This impacts the study of bird behavior, and our grasp of how birds navigate during migration, classify objects, and interact socially and sexually. For example, some species we see as having identical male and female plumage differ when seen in the ultraviolet range, a difference apparent to the birds themselves.

Also the information gained from this experiment could affect anyone who wanted birds in their yard, or wanted to feed birds in the winter or spring. People who work for the Department of Fish and Wildlife might also be interested. Introduction: This experiment asks a simple question: what colors are birds attracted to? The birds in this...
