Powdermill Avian Research Center (www.powdermillarc.org) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its first ever virtual workshop on Motus technology beginning 11am (EST) Friday March 19th and ending 4pm Sunday March 21st, 2021. Workshop sessions will run from 11am to 1pm (EST) with an hour-long break for lunch, and then 2pm to 4pm (EST). The workshop will be held via Zoom and hosted by Powdermill Nature Reserve, the field station of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and the Northeast Motus Collaboration. Due to the virtual nature of this workshop, a strong internet connection is highly recommended. The workshop is aimed towards those with little or no experience utilizing nanotags and the Motus Wildlife Network. Participants will learn the necessary components of setting up a Motus station and attaching nanotags to live birds. Presentations will focus on project planning, examples of how the network has been used for research, and limitations of the technology. Workshop registration is $300 for professionals, $150 for students and professionals working within Latin America.
