Health and Movement Patterns of Bahamian Seabirds

Seabirds are sampled for avian influenza at colonies in the Exuma Cays, Bahamas. Geolocators are deployed on two seabird species, Audubon's Shearwater and White-tailed Tropicbird, to map annual movement patterns. These are the first efforts to map annual movements of seabirds from this region. Data will be used in conservation planning throughout the northwest Atlantic basin.
