Satellite tracking Baudin's cockatoos

Last week I helped attach satellite tracking devices to two Baudin's cockatoos. We used the same devices and methodology I used on my study birds with the hope that it would work just as well. They were released on Friday evening and so far so good.

Murdoch University released a media statement today that summarises their movements for the first few days and other details.
