Identifying Eagle Behaviors Using Low-Cost Activity Indices Derived from High-Cost Accelerometry Data TRICIA MILLER*, SHELDON BLACKSHIRE, ANDREW MCGANN, ROBERT FOGG, and MICHAEL LANZONE, Cellular Tracking Technologies, Rio Grande, NJ, U.S.A. Recent advances in telemetry devices have made it possible to collect and recover acceleration data using cellular phone networks (GSM) that typically have larger coverage […]
Quantifying Bald and Golden Eagle Behavior Using High Frequency GPS Sampling and Accelerometry Data *MICHAEL LANZONE (firstname.lastname@example.org), ANDREW MCGANN, TRICIA MILLER, ROBERT FOGG, SHELDON BLACKSHIRE, Cellular Tracking Technologies, Rio Grande, NJ. Critical to understanding energy budgets is understanding how an animal spends its time. To improve our understanding of energy budgets, we continuously tracked six […]
Wildlife tracker devices are an incredible aid to your project. But will you get them in time? Are they are easy to activate and reliable? Is the data presented well? Design is key in all these areas. The design of a wildlife trackers impacts the level of time needed to manufacture them and their reliability. […]
What does it mean for your songbird biology research, wildlife consulting or wildlife management project when a telemetry device manufacturer can’t make your timeline? Lost time can mean, for graduate students in particular, the project may never get completed. Not a strong way to start your career.
There have been some incredible advances in tracking devices used in wildlife research, particularly for small birds. Wildlife telemetry devices have shrunk in weight, for sure, and there are far fewer trade-offs to realize the weight advantages. What would you need in tracking devices for your next project to make them ideal? Here are some […]
