How long do the batteries in the transmitters last? Do the transmitters stay on the bird for life or do the straps rot and fall off in time after the transmitter stops working?

I was told they expect the transmitter to fall off in about two years. The string used to install the transmitter will decay and everything will fall off.

Ed - fine series that really tells the story quite well. Handling raptors (even hooded young ones) is a skill that definitely takes some time & training. (I have some scars to prove it!!). But this work will definitely help in the protection of these fine birds. Thanks for documenting the exprerience with some great photos!
