Extensions to a prototype predator aversion system using electric shock conditioning are described using both field and laboratory testing. Responses were recorded and analyzed using various recording equipment capturing digital photographs or video images. The major extension explored in this study is examining sensory cues (aside from touch) associated with using replica bait. The experiment in Venice Beach is further validated by understanding the interaction of corvids and replica bait.
