Ellis Bird Farm was very pleased to present and participate in the Western Canada Bird Banding Workshop, held in Edmonton on March 29-31. Ellis Bird Farm team members Alisha Ritchie, Leo de Groot and Myrna Pearman delivered a well-received presentation entitled "Using Tracking Technologies to Inform and Inspire." Maureen Carey, Claudia Lipski and Lucas Wessner also attended the conference.
Over the past few years, Ellis Bird Farm has developed and deployed various technologies to monitor and track cavity-nesting birds: CCTVs; cavity cameras; light level geolocators; GPS units; and the use of RFID technology. This presentation will briefly summarize and demonstrate the highlights of how these technologies have been enabled the collection of important scientific information, but also how they have been used to share the information to educate, engage and inspire the public.
