Birds were housed in pairs in nonmagnetic, stainless steel cages (700 x 360 x 360 mm; Mascot Wire Works, NSW Australia) placed in the center of each room within a Merritt's cube-surface coil for magnetic field manipulations (Kirschvink 1992).
Birds were exposed to an altered magnetic field using a vertically aligned cube-surface coil (Kirschvink 1992) around their holding cages after control tests.
A cube-surface coil similar to that used in the holding rooms generated the experimental magnetic fields in the testing room (Table 1).
