Infrared Cockatiels

All birds are warm-blooded. This means that they try to maintain a constant internal body temperature regardless of the temperature of their surroundings. Warm-blooded animals generate their own internal heat. These cockatiels are covered with thick feathers which insulate them from the cold. In the thermal infrared images shown below, you can see how areas of the cockatiel's bodies which are not well insulated, such as their eyes, radiate more heat.
