Abstract

We are deploying satellite transmitters on Wood storks to examine their large-scale movements, breeding season foraging range and habitat use, breeding site tenacity over time, and habitat use during the non-breeding season. Most storks were captured via rocket netting, although a few were captured with a drop net.

Purpose
