It is necessary to comply with the tracker with the individual bird weight (and size), in the given range, due to bird’s specific natural behavior, biology, habitat, etc. EBT-28 is also suitable for the large birds such as hawk (Accipiter gentilis), pern (Pernis apivorus), buzzard (Buteo buteo), heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), swamp harrier (Circus aeruginosus), common shelduck (Tadorna) and other. It is possible to use the devices for tracking of smaller birds as well, such as little egret (Egretta garzetta). Nevertheless the smaller bird’s weight of this breed, EBT-28 would not disturb their natural life and habits (e.g. moving and surviving of the birds) due to the specific characteristics of bird’s flight pattern.

It is quite possible a higher class (heavier) EBT tracker to be replaced with a lower weight (lower class) device. This should be in compliance with the particular bird’s feather size. For birds with large feathers, it might be possible that the feathers cover the device solar panel (if a lower class tracker is used) and thus to disturb the tracker’s energy balance and lifetime during use. That is why it is recommended to use the specifi ed above tracker devices per bird’s weight.
