Here's a Condor high up in the Andes with a huge transmitter (5DSR + 100-400mm II +1.4x). The transmitter is so large that it is almost a feature.Not every bird but the birds in some research programs are getting it. And not only rings - the species of bird below is coming to the islands even more heavily equipped: many of them are "armed" with radio transmitter (actually in some flocks you have to look for one without antenna - just to take more "natural" shot. It's how it was proven they fly from Alaska to Hawaii (~4000 miles!) nonstop...
And since you already have that app - no need to write the name of the bird - that photo has everything needed for accurate ID (and it's easy!)!
