can you beat this?
Professor John Cooper sent us this from the Kenyan South Coast.
Use of a field (mirror-illuminated) microscope to examine material from a dead wild bird (Cisticola species) with pronounced ocular lesions. John did field cytology (Giemsa stain) and microscopical examination confirmed a caseous purulent ophthalmitis. Two Kenyan assistants are being taught how to use the
microscope for such purposes.
John sent the photo to the Cage & Aviary Bird readers photo page and it was printed on Sept 5th, 2012
