Event Description

The use of small unmanned vehicle systems (aka drones) is rapidly evolving as wildlife biologists and managers all over the world adopt them for conducting population surveys, tracking radio-tagged animals, sensing and observing animals in sequestered or dangerous places, mapping and monitoring wild habitats, and deterring poachers. This naturally includes avian species. Dr. David Bird has experimented with using drones to record the nest contents of several raptorial bird species, abundance of nesting colonies, counting seabirds, map breeding habitat and to disperse nuisance birds. Join Dr. Bird for this visual presentation.
