The Bobolink Odyssey started a crazy exciting experiment on May 23. We deployed an Argos satellite tag on a male Bobolink, now affectionately known as ‘Garbanzo’, breeding on one of our study fields. This tag allows us to follow his real time movements. We know a lot about this bird. We banded him as a chick in 2016 and he returned to breed in 2017 very close to where he hatched. We caught him again in 2018, and gave him a geolocator to track his migration. We recaptured him again on May, 23 2019, recovered the geolocator (data soon!). Here are pictures of Garbanzo with the satellite tag and a map of his movements between May 23 and June 3. On June 1 he took a three mile flight south and returned the same day. What kind of tomfoolery was he up to then?
