North-Nesting Songbirds Tagged In Nicaragua For Monitoring By Growing Motus Network

  • March 18, 2021

“With support from the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC), and in collaboration with its partners at the El Jaguar Reserve, American Bird Conservancy (ABC) recently financed and assisted in placing “nanotags,” small radio transmitters, on ten Wood Thrushes and ten Louisiana Waterthrushes in northern Nicaragua. Both songbirds nest in the United States and small portions of southern Canada but winter predominantly in Central America, southern Mexico, and, in the case of the waterthrush, the Caribbean as well.”

Using Lotek Nanotags, the American Bird Conservancy, along with El Jaguar Reserve,  will track the movements of the tagged waterthrushes using the Motus network. Read the full story at the link below:
