a Utilization distributions (UDs) for the reconstructed paths that were based on location estimates of the top tag (a) and the bottom tag (b). The tracks are colour-coded by behavioural state (orange = searching and blue = transit) assigned by the hidden Markov model. The black dotted lines represent the core area of utilization (95% contour of the UD). c Time line of the behavioural states assigned to each hour by the HMM based on data collected by the top and bottom tag. The two graphics show the time discrepancies of the behavioural states assigned to the two reconstructed paths
