Hi, I am getting a female Harris hawk soon and have been looking at the different types of tracking equipment.
As most telemetry equipment is very expensive I've been looking at the new types of small GPS trackers.
A falconer I've met uses a small GPS locator attached to the flight Jesse's next to the leg, it only weighs about 5 grams, is usb rechargeable and it's not specifically for birds but he tells me it works well and doesn't get in the way. He has a redtail.
I would like some opinions on products such as this:
Tile runs off a Bluetooth signal. From what I have read it has a max range in ideal conditions of 150 feet. That does not come close to the range needed in order to track your bird. Even mounted bells provide a better locating resource for longer ranges.
