Author: Knight EC , Bayne EM

This report demonstrates how bioacoustic technology can be used to fill data gaps for rare and/or nocturnal species using the Common Nighthawk as a case study. For Common Nighthawks, this study highlights the importance of landscape scale variables for both home range and territory selection. Results produced from this study provide wildlife managers with more knowledge on the Common Nighthawk, and emphasize the importance of landscape scale conservation for highly-mobile species with large home ranges.
