    High-Res Imaging Expands Vision Research of Live Birds of Prey: Study Produces First-Time Images of Retinal Structure of Hawks and Owls
    Bird observatories all over the world may benefit from a newly designed high-resolution imaging system used to study the retinal structure of live birds of prey. In a recently published Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science article, researchers reveal unprecedented three-dimensional information about the retina of four species of raptors -- two hawks and two owls -- using the non-invasive, powerful imaging tool.

    1. Previous anatomical studies of raptor foveae required examination of the retina with a microscope, limiting the number of birds that could be studied.
    2. One can imagine that obtaining data with an SD-OCT scanner could become a routine procedure at the many bird observatories in the world.
