Summary

Hawaiian hoary bats (Lasiurus cinereus semotus) on Hawaii island were surveyed intermittently from 2004–2010. This data release is a single table of resulting bat location estimates, including date, time, coordinates for each location, and presumed bat activity at the time of collection. Nightly movements were documented for 30 Hawaiian hoary bats along the windward (eastern) side of the island of Hawaii. Each bat was fitted with a colored, split ring forearm band (Size X3; A. C. Hughes, Hampton Hill, United Kingdom) for long-term individual recognition and with a radiotransmitter (BD-2C model from Holohil Systems, Carp, Ontario, Canada). Bats were then released at the point of capture. Output from the transmitters was monitored with [...]

Purpose

The Hawaiian hoary bat is nocturnal, solitary (except when dependent infants are with mothers), a highly mobile flyer, and cryptic as its roosts in trees, thus understanding its movements and habits has long challenged biologists. These data were collected to help estimate summer/fall foraging ranges (FR), core-use areas (CUAs), and the long axis (LAX) across the FR. The term “foraging range” is used as the area traversed by an individual as it searches for food and feeds as well as movements from/to day roosts and night roosts (from Bonaccorso et al. 2015).
