Hawaii Island forest bird movement data from 2014 to 2019

January 21, 2023

This data release includes data and metadata containing estimated and predicted locations of radio telemetered Hawaiian forest birds. Radio telemetry data was collected using an automated radio telemetry network from 2014 to 2019 from birds in two study sites, one a continuous forest and the other a fragmented forest. Four bird species that varied in age and sex were studied: the nectarivorous ʻiʻiwi (Drepanis coccinea) and ʻapapane (Himatione sanguinea), the frugivorous ʻōmaʻo (Myadestes obscurus), and the generalist Hawaiʻi ʻamakihi (Chlorodrepani virens). Data were used in the analysis for the manuscript entitled "Landscape fragmentation alters movement behavior and space use of Hawaiian forest birds."
