Abstract

We respond here to a critique of our paper (Small et al. 2004b) regarding the methodology used to implant subcutaneous transmitters in white-winged doves (Zenaida asiatica). We agree with Mulcahy (2006) that more information regarding the methodology we used would have been appropriate. However, we refute the contention that we could not have followed the surgical protocol we cited and that protocols were not sterile. We believe this misinterpretation of our methods comes from a failure to note some of the finer points reported in our methodology. We address each issue made by Mulcahy (2006) in this response.
