In addition to static content on the Golden Eagle research project, we will update this blog with information on what the tracked Golden Eagles are doing, where they are, etc.
Golden Eagle Update, 22 April 2013
Hytop, the 5 yr old male caught in north Alabama, has apparently decided not to try to breed this year. This would be likely his first nesting attempt, but the bird came back south from near the Hudson Bay. When he headed northeast through eastern Ontario, I was sure he was going to out of range through the breeding season, however he came back south and spent a couple weeks in southern Ontario again before going out of range again on 21 April 13.
The Hatfield Knob, Tennessee bird, a 3 yr old male, finally left the southern Kentucky area he wintered in and headed north up the Appalachian Mountains through eastern West Virginia into western Maryland. He eventually got into southern Quebec and went off the radar on 22 April 13.
