Radiotracking Part 2

We are still back in 1988/89 focussing on the work done in the project 'Conservation of the Ground Parrot'. The report to the World Wildlife Fund, Australia, was unpublished. The past few blogs are also based on this report.

This project is important because for the first time the Ground Parrot in Western Australia was studied scientifically and certain facts came to light. The pattern of the bird's day - the breakdown of feeding and resting times was fairly consistent; flight times were also, but whether a bird would fly at the flight times was definitely not guaranteed.

Below is an extract from the report showing some of the results that were obtained from the radiotracking.
