Abstract: The project would use satellite transmitters on common murres to determine both the summer feeding areas and wintering areas of murres from the Barren Islands colony. The project would investigate food availability to murres and test the hypothesis that food availability is limiting the recovery of the Barren Islands population. The project would also collect data on murre diving depths through externally mounted depth recorders.
