Tracking Western Gulls

We are collecting individual tracking data of western gulls to better understand their seasonal movements.  Additionally, since gulls are dynamic fliers, and likely spend time flying at heights where they might collide with at-sea wind turbines, we are collecting baseline data to better estimate western gull flight heights to improve vulnerability assessments to off-shore wind development.
