Gamebirds, including species of Anseriformes and Galliformes, display a wide array of unique life-history traits.Nesting activities of game birds are of particular interest to determine production rates, identify predators, understand nest attentiveness, and monitor other nesting behaviors that can assist management of these species.Historically, researchers have used a variety of means to assess these parameters, but direct documentation has generally been difficult or impossible.Recently, camera systems have been used to monitor nest activities.Although most camera studies suffer from small sample sizes, they have demonstrated biases of using signs at nests for identifying predators and the prevalence of multiple predation events and partial clutch loss.Advances in camera technology offer fresh opportunities to address game-bird management needs.
