Bird Necklaces - VHF
Biotrack necklace tags were first developed for pheasants, Phasianus colchicus but have now become the standard radio tag for most game birds in projects throughout Western Europe. In two large-scale studies comparing survival rates between groups of pheasants equipped with either harness-mounted dummy backpacks, dummy necklaces or leg bands, there was no difference in survival rates.
We recommend necklace tags weighing 2-3% of body weight for most Galliformes, but please contact us before ordering.
Applicable tags: Transmitters that use a necklace attachment include the Pip, PicoPip and TW-3 tags.
