That's one idea that maybe could be perfected somehow for some birds. It be
a monumental task. This was on a very small scale. It appears they were
tracking bluebirds as they moved from one small clearing to another to feed
on Myrtle seeds. Birds tended to follow straight lines. I think this was
more of an effort to see whether they could restore habitat by clearing some
pines, not the entire woods.

If they only could track bats!

Subject: [Delphi] Bird travels tracked by fluorescent droppings


We talked about how difficult it is to track migratory paths. Here is an
article about a new technique for tracking migratory paths.


Something to keep in mind if anyone ever commissions a study to map out the
migratory paths in Michigan.
