Re: Bird travels tracked by fluorescent droppings

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!

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.
