Motus station installed at Pikes Peak will detect tagged birds in area


In late October, a Motus Wildlife Tracking System station was installed at Pikes Peak State Park near McGregor, making the site just one of only a handful in Iowa that, through radio telemetry, will be able to detect and record nearby small animals—namely birds—with tags. (Submitted photos)

The setup includes antennas and receivers, which avian ecologist Anna Buckardt Thomas installed with help from Pikes Peak staff.

The station is located on the Pikes Peak State Park shop/office building. “They were looking for somewhere up on a bluff that has a state DNR building they could attach it to, and we’re like right on the river, right on the Mississippi River Flyway, so it worked really well,” said Pikes Peak State Park Manager Matt Tschirgi. “And there’s a pathway here, both east and west, where the trees are somewhat clear, so the antennas are pointed where it would help pick up stuff.”

A map at motus.org notes all the stations. You can click on the individual locations to see what has been detected.
