question on the air sac injury


Being Pip is the first I've dealt with such, what exactly is the air sac ? Isn't it the lung or something , a puncture in lung that causes the "bubbles?"


Air sac rupture .. want to learn all i can so I know it if I ever see it again.

Air sacs are part of the respiratory system of a bird, but they are not the lung. This is a decent article on the subject though perhaps TMI (too much information): http://people.eku.edu/ritchisong/birdrespiration.html
