New insights into Ovenbird Migratory Connectivity with PinPoint-10 GPS tags (1.2g)

In this study, Ovenbirds from two Eastern USA sites were captured and tagged with GPS PinPoint-10 tags to identify the non-breeding location of individuals, and to quantify the strength of migratory connectivity (the degree to which migratory individuals are arranged geographically during two or more stages of the annual cycle).
