Establishment of juvenile Black-capped Chickadees in winter flocks.
|Description:||We want to understand the links between natal dispersal and the establishment of social relationships by juvenile Black-capped Chickadees (Poecile atricapillus) once they settle into winter flocks. We wish to determine whether social establishment patterns differ betwen periurban and agriculture-dominated landscapes.
MOTUS will help us track the dispersal of young BCCH from natal territory to their wintering grounds. We hope to make effective use of a whip antenna connected to a SensorGnome aboard a vehicle as a first step to zero in on those elusive dispersers.
As a pilot project, four BCCH were fitted with coded transmitters on 8 September 2016, in a wooded area on the southern edge of the greater Ottawa region. The pilot project was inconclusive, and the project is put on hod for now. (Last update 28 June 2017)
