Cinnamon teal locations from GPS-GSM tracked birds

Detailed Description

Locations of GPS-GSM tracked cinnamon teal between April 2017 and August 2021. 

Since 2017, USGS scientists have tagged more than 200 cinnamon teal with lightweight, solar-powered GPS-GSM transmitters, which the ducks wear like backpacks. The GPS transmitters produce near real-time data on where the birds go and what kinds of habitats they use.
