I am new at trying to learn to navigate the MOTUS R api.  I am trying to access detections for a tag deployment for any tag that visits my receiver. I am looking for all detections for the most recent tag deployment of a detected tag.  (Date, Receiver (name or Id), Lat, Lon etc. as a list.

Since my tagme() download is for my receiver only,  my download sqlLite database seems to get me as far the tag deployment for any tags visiting our receiver from other projects. My sqllite database does not extend to the actual detections list for those tagged visitors not registered to my project. (We are a effectively a  'listening only project'  as we are not actively tagging birds at present).

I know this should be possible as I can enter a "motusTagID" from the "runs" table into the motus.org URL and get the results returned as a table.

I do not seem to be able to find an API call in R that returns similar results.  I could scrape the results off of the web page with httr etc. but would prefer to use the supported API.

Can someone provide a code snippet or pointer to the API docs or examples  that would do the trick?
Thanks -Rich
