Tracking bird movement and behaviour at multiple scales in space and time is no easy task. A team at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) have worked together to develop a flexible, state of the art, Bird Tracking System, the UvA-BiTS.
The system includes a solar powered, light weight GPS tag with rechargeable batteries, a tri-axial accelerometer, two way data-communication to a ground station network, automated data processing and visualization in the Virtual Lab. Researchers from multiple organizations are working with this system to study migration, navigation, foraging strategies on land and at sea. The system will continue to develop fostering research needs of a diverse community.
