Movement Ecology

Where and when they move, and why….

Our objectives for studying the movement ecology of the Red-tailed Hawk are broad and evolving, but we currently have two birds that are transmitting data to achieve two objectives: connect their phenotype and genotype to a breeding location and resolve the status of polymorphism in the subspecies abieticola. We hope to grow this effort as a strategy for obtaining breeding provenance for population genomics work, while developing a growing dataset to answer questions including, but not limited to, the phenology of movements, differential movements between and within populations, and to better understand plumage type as an indicator of geographic origin.
