Wild Bird

Red River Commodities has processed wild bird food and wildlife food products for more than 30 years. Our two wildlife food processing facilities are located in the heart of sunflower seed and grain-growing regions. We contract directly with local growers to provide the freshest possible grains at the best possible prices. We are an origin value-added manufacturer, which ensures timeliness with market conditions and decisions. All our wildlife products contain premium-grade quality seed, and we work closely with our customers to create blends, processing steps, and packaging to feed their goals.

Despite their stable group membership, vulturine guineafowl are not territorial; they roost communally in trees that can contain several hundred birds and regularly encounter other groups during the day, at which times between-groups agonistic interactions are rarely observed [32]. Vulturine guineafowl are therefore ideal for studying group movements because groups can move freely, unbounded by territorial boundaries, but maintain a relatively consistent home range over the course of each season [26, 32]. Birds breed during wet seasons in which sufficient rainfall has occurred, with a breeding season usually lasting around 2 months. In such periods, multiple breeding pairs split from their group to breed. Males return to their group when the female starts incubating her eggs and females return to their group when their chicks hatch. Based on our field observations, birds are prone to ambush by carnivorous mammals, such as jackals or leopards, when moving through dense vegetation, and are an important prey item for raptors, such as martial eagles [35], to which they are susceptible to predation when in open areas.

Coordinated collective behaviour can emerge from local interactions between individuals in the absence of centralised control [52]. Even in natural groups consisting of members with different social status (e.g. dominance rank, state of need, experience) and varying characteristics (e.g. sex, body size, age), individuals seem to follow simple rules to coordinate collective actions [53, 54]. For example, to remain cohesive meerkats follow the most vocally active spot of their group [55] and wild olive baboons coordinate with their nearest neighbours [53]. What remains largely unexplored is whether these individual rules can allow groups to adjust their behaviour to changing environments. The seasonal differences we found in ranging behaviour and cohesion might indicate either that the interaction rules among individuals change in response to seasonality to allow groups to adapt to new conditions [9], or that the existing rules can allow groups to achieve substantially different outcomes across different environmental conditions through the emergent properties of inter-individual interactions.

Severe and extended droughts, such as the East-African drought of early 2019 [69], are predicted to occur more frequently due to climate change [23]. During this particular drought (seasons 5 and 6 in our data), we observed that vulturine guineafowl groups significantly changed their ranging patterns in our study area. They ranged over larger areas and, correspondingly, travelled longer distances every day. Further, many groups used different areas to their normal ranges (Fig. 3). Such behavioural strategies are expected to be critical to buffer the effects of climate changes on individual fitness [70] and, in turn, influence the population responses to these changes [71]. However, by forcing group-living species to travel longer distances and into new areas, droughts might impact individual survival, in turn leading to population-level shrinkage [72]. We found that the outcome of group changes in behaviour resulted in a major increase in the area needed for the whole population. Our findings potentially capture an important process for savannah-dwelling species: as animal groups range into wider areas to cover their needs, they could start overlapping more with human populations, which can lead to a range of human-wildlife conflicts [73]. Thus, species may be more limited by dry-season space availability than they are by resources needed to breed.

Kaleidoscope Pro\u2019s Cluster Analysis uses sophisticated pattern recognition algorithms to automatically scan wildlife audio recordings for bird songs, frog calls, bat echolocations, or other animal vocalizations. Once detected, the sounds are sorted into groups of similar sounds called \u201cclusters.\u201d Clusters can be labeled for species inventory or annotated to create classifiers that can be run on additional recordings.","button_1_text":"Learn More","button_1_url":"https:\/\/\/products\/kaleidoscope\/cluster-analysis","button_1_target":"_self","button_2_text":null,"button_2_url":null,"button_2_target":"_self","button_3_text":null,"button_3_url":null,"button_3_target":"_self","footnotes":null},"src":"\/imager\/pageimages\/64632\/Bat-Screen-copy_90d62f289aedc80fc72d792f54f1995d.png","retinaSrc":"\/imager\/pageimages\/64632\/Bat-Screen-copy_697d56b0fe342bccb50b44eb897b39b9.png","webpSrcset":"\/imager\/pageimages\/64632\/Bat-Screen-copy_90d62f289aedc80fc72d792f54f1995d.webp 1x, \/imager\/pageimages\/64632\/Bat-Screen-copy_697d56b0fe342bccb50b44eb897b39b9.webp 2x","alt":null,"width":815,"height":526,"leading_heading":null,"heading":"Bat Auto-ID","text":"Kaleidoscope Pro Bat Auto-ID analyzes recordings of bat echolocations and automatically suggests the most likely bat species around you.* The software also provides an efficient workflow for manually vetting Bat Auto-ID suggestions, reducing the amount of time necessary to analyze your recordings. \n*Bat Auto-ID classifiers are currently available for North America, Europe, South America, and the Neotropics.","button_1_text":"Learn More","button_1_url":"https:\/\/\/products\/kaleidoscope\/automatic-bat-identification","button_1_target":"_self","button_2_text":null,"button_2_url":null,"button_2_target":"_self","button_3_text":null,"button_3_url":null,"button_3_target":"_self","footnotes":null,"src":"\/imager\/pageimages\/65799\/noise-analysis_graph-1_90d62f289aedc80fc72d792f54f1995d.png","retinaSrc":"\/imager\/pageimages\/65799\/noise-analysis_graph-1_697d56b0fe342bccb50b44eb897b39b9.png","webpSrcset":"\/imager\/pageimages\/65799\/noise-analysis_graph-1_90d62f289aedc80fc72d792f54f1995d.webp 1x, \/imager\/pageimages\/65799\/noise-analysis_graph-1_697d56b0fe342bccb50b44eb897b39b9.webp 2x","alt":null,"width":320,"height":226,"leading_heading":null,"heading":"Sound Level Analysis","text":"The Kaleidoscope Pro Sound Level Analysis feature allows you to scan a batch of recordings in accordance with various standards to analyze the noise spectrum and generate a report.
