The data package contains one dataset:
- Raptor birds were tracked by satellite telemetry (see main text for details and references). In this file, we provide an overview of tracking histories of individual birds, which formed the basis for our analysis on spatiotemporal patterns in mortality. Every row represents one individual. We provide tracking history which includes date animal was tagged, date tracking was terminated, classification for termination. Ospreys returning with non-functional transmitters were recaptured and fitted with new transmitters, hence they occasionally have two tracking histories. We also provide number of seasons and months survived.
