Songbirds and mobile phones
September 12th, 2005

“Ornithologists and engineers at Oregon State University are planning to strap tiny mobile phones to songbirds and monitor the birds’ migration with unprecedented accuracy”,Wired reports.”But the birds will not “phone home” like college kids calling from spring break destinations.Instead,the cellular devices will send simple codes to cell towers along migratory routes.The devices attached to the birds will share unique identification numbers with cell towers as they pass within range.Network service providers will record the ID numbers,the towers contacted and the times when contact was made”.
