Schematic design of the harness attachment design and study species. a A schematic design of the harness attachment design with locations indicated where cramping rings are placed. Before deployment, the harness is attached to the front end of the tracking device (upper picture). During deployment, the harness is fastened on the goose by placing the neck loop over the head and attaching the ends of the body loop to the sides of the tracking device (under the wing of the bird).
