Abstract

Seasonal adjustment of alpha-chloralose captures of sandhill cranes was associated with a modest increase in capture efficacy ( 13%), decreased morbidity from exertional myopathy (−1.4%), and overall mortality (−1.7%) rates despite little change in sedation scores. Postcapture fluid administration also decreased confinement times by several hours over most sedation scores.
