I'm working on constructing a reference of harness sizes for attaching VHF tags to various species. I'm hoping that the group can help fill this out for future use by our collaborators! If anyone has experience attaching tags using the backpack-style harnesses, could you please forward me (off-list is fine) the following info?:
Harness size (snug), in millimetres (this is the same as the length of a single loop) - e.g. Blackpoll Warbler is a 33-36mm harness
Number of tags attached on this species (approximate is OK for large sample sizes)
If you have info on multiple species, please send all of it! I'll work on getting the reference table posted on motus.org
in a readable way when it's complete.
