Abstract

During the winter months, ovaries and oviducts of the sparrows are greatly reduced. Injection of pregnant mare serum during this resting period stimulates the ovary to an activity which simulates that of the breeding season. Oviducts respond to the increased amounts of female hormone released by the ovary.
