Red-feathered birds linked to eye damage

1 post in this topic

Birds with red, orange or chestnut feathers are more likely to suffer from eye damage, researchers have found.

Scientists discovered the link after analysing the lenses in the eyes of 81 different species of bird.

Birds known for their bright flashes of colour, such as robins, were found to be more prone to cataracts.

Dr Ismael Galvan from Paris-Sud University, who led the study, said the results could have implications for other species, including humans.
