We use state-of-the-art RECONYX motion sensitive cameras to record breeding phenology (lay dates, initiation of incubation, hatch dates) and to identify causes of nestling mortality. In addition, we mark (unique alphanumeric color bands) all nestlings and as many adults as possible in an effort to estimate survival and recruitment. We are often able to identify individuals by reading bands from photographs of birds on nest ledges.
