BDN features Filiberti bird research

A Bangor Daily News column featured Emily Filiberti, master’s student in wildlife ecology at the University of Maine, and her work using Nano Tags and the Motus Wildlife Tracking System to research bird migration. The column noted that while traditional bird-banding remains valuable, technological advancements like the methods Filiberti uses make it possible to track some birds via satellite, using GPS transmitters. With enough receiving stations set up along migration routes through the Motus Wildlife Tracking System, the exact route taken by tagged birds becomes clearer.
