This data release contains a spreadsheet with migration and wintering locations of Red-throated Loons marked with satellite transmitters from four breeding populations in Alaska, 2000-2011. Implanted internal platform terminal transmitters (PTT) were programmed to elicit signals for 8 hours followed by a quiescent period of 48 - 120 hours, depending on season and year of study. Location data were collected by the CLS Argos system.
