It seems the Animal Detection Team has been conducting a bit more experimentation involving their aptly named Animal Detector imaging device –

This past week, we took the device to the beach. One afternoon we set the light aside and pointed the camera skyward, recording the motion of pelicans and seagulls flying by for a couple of hours. The birds and their wings traced such elegant paths across the sky. The multi-exposure traces below were made by importing quicktime films into ImageJ and making Z-projections of the resulting stacks.

Branching out from research/surveillance into documentarion art – nicely done.
