Stud y uses great tits to measure air pollution:

Czech scientists have captured around sixty great tits all around the country to measure the level of heavy metals in their bodies and their impact on the birds’ health. At the same time, they used the birds to map the extent of heavy metal contamination in various regions around the country. The results of the study were published in a prestigious international magazine called Science of the Total Environment.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
