Purpose

Data were collected to a) determine the extent to which two available thermal infrared sensors were able to detect a juvenile domestic chicken (a surrogate for a tern chick) in various vegetation types and from multiple elevations above the subject during the diurnal hours; b) examine if computer-based digital thresholding could successfully detect the thermal signature of the chick; and c) compare and contrast the capabilities and efficacy of the two thermal infrared systems to determine potential for use in detecting tern chicks in the field.
