UGA Specific Information for Avian Biology

Birds play an increasingly important part in human economy and society. Domesticated birds provide food, feathers and companionship; wild birds are significant players in nearly every terrestrial ecosystem.

Bird biology, behavior, productivity and management are all subjects avian science majors study in detail. Graduates may work with food birds such as chickens; with birds kept as companions or in aviaries; with game bird populations or with wild birds in any part of the world.
