Bebe’s word search
Dinkins said, “None of
the sage grouse in Baker
are going to have a GPS
backpack. They’re going
to be some down in the
reference sites that will.
That’s daily data, with
location data more than
once a day.
“Ten of the ravens are
going to be collared, and
will have GPS units, in
Baker, so, we’ll get more
refi ned data daily.
“All of the birds that
have a backpack or collar
that’s a VHF, we’ll have to
ground track them. We’ll
get one or two locations
per week, which is a
pretty typical way of going
about collecting data for
these types of analyses ...
It would be great if they
could all be GPS units, but
they’re much, much more
Catching sage grouse
involves soft captures at
night, using a fl ashlight
shined in their eyes, and
tube nets placed over the
top of them, one at a time.
“There are other methods,
but, that’s the softest way
to capture sage grouse,”
Dinkins said. On the raven
side of things, the most
effective way is to use a
leg hold trap, similar to
one used to catch mam-
mals, which are padded,
with a small gap, to avoid
breaking the ravens’ legs,
he said.
It’s early in the study,
Dinkins said there aren’t
any results to share yet,
and he didn’t necessarily
have a theory about what
may be occurring, but, “If
we assume that ravens may
be an issue, what I’d found
in the past was, popula-
tions of sage grouse that
are in severe decline, and
that have a small spacial
footprint—so they’re
not buffered with immi-
grants being able to come
in—those are the ones
where conservation action,
quickly relieving one of
their stressors—ravens in
this case—could help them
to pass recovery.”
But, he said that, if
non-lethal mechanisms
are put into place, in order
to manipulate the number
of ravens, there would be
greater success. “Really,
that’s what’s in the frame
work for designing this
project. You’d be reducing
carrying capacity, or, the
ability of sagebrush, for
the ravens. If you reduce
food resources in the win-
ter in Baker County, then,
not as many ravens will be
able to over-winter there,
which, over time, reduces
your abundance.”
Dinkins said, “Juniper is
a mechanism that could be
in play, behind the increas-
ing utility of sagebrush, to
something like a raven, or
other raptors ...Yes, I have
thought about that quite a
bit, so, the raven students
are going to be analyzing
how, collecting data on
structures (man-made and
natural), so, junipers would
be one of those ...”
Dinkins’ previous
research on the topic
includes his dissertation,
“Common Raven Density
and Greater Sage-Grouse
Nesting Success in South-
ern Wyoming: Potential
Conservation and Manage-
ment Implications,” writ-
ten in 2013, as part of his
PhD in Wildlife Biology.
He joined the OSU faculty
last September.
