The 2016 Radiotelemetry season will begin mid-October. Regular updates can be found here once tracking begins. You can read about past seasons on the Telemetry Blog at www.ggrotelemetry.blogspot.com.
Volunteer radiotrackers fit a banded hawk with a radio transmitter weighing less than 3 percent of body weight, and follow the hawk constantly as it moves through California. A successful tracking season gives us a chance to study daily timing of migration, the hawk's habitat use, and even the human impacts on migration.
