For a limited time only, Dr. Scott Echols and his fellow researchers are offering select images available as 16x20” high resolution prints to raise funds to further avian research and the anatomy project.
The Grey Parrot Anatomy Project was established in part to improve upon and create technology that allows the world to study anatomy of any animal. While the focus is on the grey parrot, the methodology being developed has already been used on birds, mammals (including humans), reptiles and more. One of the advances has been the development of BriteVu®, a new contrast agent that allows researchers to see vasculature (with the aid of a CT scan) down to the capillary level.

- Pigeon (Columba livia)
