Record #139277:

Orientation cage experiments with dunlins during autumn migration in Iceland / Roland Sandberg, Gudmundur A. Gudmundsson.

Title: Orientation cage experiments with dunlins during autumn migration in Iceland / Roland Sandberg, Gudmundur A. Gudmundsson.
Author(s): Sandberg, Roland.
Gudmundsson, Gudmundur A.
Date: 1996.
In: Journal of Avian Biology. (1996.), Vol. 27(3) (1996)
Abstract: Migratory orientation of Calidris alpina at sunset was studied using orientation cages during autumn migration. Aim was to examine whether orientation funnels can be used to record directional behaviour of shore birds. They can. This opens up possibility of performing carefully controlled experiments to investigate orientation and navigation mechanisms of migrating waders.
