New paper on annual activity of free-living songbirds

Annual activity and flight data for free-living songbirds open up many new research possibilities. Main topics that can be addressed are e.g. migratory flight performance, timing of stationary periods, activity patterns in different phases of the annual cycle and variability in the annual activity patterns between and within individuals.

In this paper, a group of CAnMove researchers together with Danish collegues present a method for collecting data, and a first case study of a red-backed shrike Lanius collurio carrying out its annual loop migration between northern Europe and southern Africa.

To the early view of the paper "Activity and migratory flights of individual free-flying songbirds throughout the annual cycle: method and first case study" in Avian Biology.
