We attached platform transmitter terminals (PPT) to  juveniles of the black-faced spoonbill at their nesting site in Korea, and are tracking their migrations as the international collaborative research between Japan (Kyushu Univ. and Univ. of Tokyo) and Korea (
Vertebrate Research Division - National Institute of Biological Resources, Korea. and Waterbird Network in Korea).
