Background

This bald eagle is a full time resident of the Chesapeake Bay region. Bay bald eagles rotate between the Bay tributaries in search of seasonally available prey like fish and waterfowl. We captured this eagle using a rocket net baited with a road killed deer. After fitting the eagle with a solar powered GPS transmitter, we released it on the shoreline of the Bay.
