Speaker:  Mark Deutschlander – “Radiotracking Migratory Songbirds with the Motus Wildlife Tracking System”

Advances in technology have created new opportunities to study avian migration and better understand

the full life cycle of migratory birds. While tracking technologies allow us to learn where birds go, these technologies also can provide detailed knowledge about the pace of migration, decision making related to breeding constraints or energetic, and the evolutionary trade-offs in migration. Several case studies will help illustrate the impacts of new tracking technologies, particularly radiotracking, and some new regional projects using Motus radiotracking on migratory songbirds will be discussed.

Mark Deutschlander is a Professor of Biology at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, where he teaches courses about physiology, ornithology, and migration. His research focuses on understanding navigation and orientation mechanisms in migratory songbirds, as well as the energetics of migration.
