Foraging ecology of Masked Boobies at Pedro Cays, Jamaica
PI: Patrick Jodice (USGS South Carolina Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Institute)
In 2012 we deployed satellite tags, geolocators, and GPS tags on breeding Masked Boobies at Middle Cay and Bird Cay on Pedro Bank, Jamaica. GPS tracks revealed that breeding birds remained relatively local while foraging and location from satellite tags confirmed that pattern. Geolocator data are currently being processed.
The research was funded by The Nature Conservancy, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Fish & Wildlife Foundation.
