- Flyway Studies – automated logging of birds or bats flying through area
- Migration Stopover Ecology – record when your tagged animals are present
- Colony Nesting Studies – log all parental feeding visits automatically
- Flight Searches – save time while searching by only listening to one frequency
- Bat Roost Behaviour – detect Bats leaving and returning to a roost
Avian NanoTag-series transmitters are ideally suited for studies involving passerines, bats, water birds and other species that require small, long-life transmitters and the ability to detect multiple individuals occupying the same area.
The most common use of Avian NanoTags is studying migration and stopover ecology using the Motus Wildlife Tracking System, which has led to some exciting discoveries about the timing of migration, the speed birds migrate and the routes they take.
Other more localised studies include recording presence absence at roosting sites, recording feeding events at seabird colonies and looking at social networks by seeing who is visiting the same site at the same time. There are many other possible studies when you want to know when an animal is at a particular site.
