Farmland birds breeding on the ground are vulnerable because their nests are exposed to ploughing, sowing, and other mechanical operations in the fields. Andrea Santangeli and John Loehr attached a thermal camera to a drone to easier find the nests. Together with AI, the results can help pave the way to integrate bird nest detection within the drone borne sensors used in precision agriculture, and automate a system for saving the nests.
