Using Thermal Imaging Cameras With Radiotelemetry to Locate Roost Sites of Male Wild Turkeys

We determined if using thermal imaging combined with radiotelemetry would allow us to study roost selection by males.  We collected data on 74 roost sites, which was 94% of the roosts we attempted to find.  We also were able to identify the tree in which the bird roosted.  Our findings suggested that using thermal imagery could allow a detailed assessment of roosting ecology.
