It’s a Frog-eat-Quail World Out There!

Radio-tagging birds can shed a lot of light on the activities of birds. 

Research is currently on-going at Necedah NWR, White River Marsh and Horicon Marsh in Wisconsin to determine breeding success among Sandhill cranes so when I saw the following headline, it grabbed my attention.

“Radio tagged birds tracked to last place you’d imagine — another animal’s stomach”

I just had to read the article…

If you’re at all squeamish, you may not want to read the story or have a look at the following photo.

You can see the antenna and the foot of one of the quail chicks in this photo. Credit:
