Abstract
Aversion/attraction experiments were conducted to determine whether birds can perceive of 2.45 GHz continuous wave microwave irradiation by observing whether Blue Jays (Cyanocitta cristata) exhibit an attraction or an aversion to the field when exposed to 25 and 50 microwaves/sq cm. At power densities of 25 and 50 microwaves/sq cm Blue Jays exhibit an aversion to microwave irradiation. (Copyright (c) Pergamon Press Ltd., 1984.)
