Introduction

The Kentucky eagle tracking project started in 2010. The eagles wear a 70g solar-powered GPS-PTT satellite transmitter, attached like a backpack with a Teflon harness. Each transmitter, or tracking device, will allow KDFWR to follow the Bald Eagle’s movements and provide information on the dispersal, survival, roosting and foraging patterns for each eagle. Solar panels recharge the transmitter's battery and we hope to receive 3-5 years of tracking data from each of these birds. This is the first study tracking Bald Eagles using satellite telemetry in Kentucky.
