Breeding and foraging ecology of Red-billed Tropicbirds in St. Eustatius

PI: Patrick Jodice (USGS South Carolina Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Institute)

Co-PI: Hannah Madden (St. Eustatius National Park Association)

In 2012 we deployed 18 geolocators on Red-billed Tropicbirds breeding on St. Eustatius (Statia). We have visited the colonies regularly since then to begin recovering these archival tags. Data are in the initial stages of review and maps will be posted soon. 

The research was funded by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, USGS, and BirdsCaribbean through a grant from The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
