Hawaiian Hoary Bat Acoustic Data, Keaukaha Military Reservation (KMR) Hawaii Island, 2018

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Hawaiian hoary bat insect prey sampling with paired acoustic monitoring was conducted at Keaukaha Military Reservation (KMR) on Hawai‘i Island from May to August, 2018. At this property, a herd of domestic goats (occasionally mixed with domestic sheep) were rotated among grazing plots as part of a weed control program managed by Hawaii Army National Guard (HIARNG). Song Meter SM2BAT+ ultrasonic detectors (Wildlife Acoustics, Maynard, MA) with SMX-US ultrasonic microphones (Wildlife Acoustics, Maynard, MA) were deployed at a total of six stations, five monitoring stations (4E, 5F-I) and an additional reference station was established in an ungrazed area with similar non-native grassland habitat approximately 800-m east of the grazing plots. Upon detection of a vocalizing bat, recording was triggered, and a call file was stored with the corresponding date and time. Recordings were analyzed with Kaleidoscope Pro version 5.1.9 (Wildlife Acoustics, Maynard, MA). All files were aurally and visually inspected for bat acoustic activity. At each acoustic monitoring station Hawaiian hoary bat echolocation pulses, call-events and feeding buzzes were summed across sampling nights within each week.
