The Eagle Tracking Project

Project Description: We’re tracking the movements of two year old Yangchen through the year. Her tracking data will be part of a study to understand Bald Eagle movements in North Carolina and help scientists better understand migratory movements, pair formation, and nesting behavior. The dynamic map below highlights Yanchen‘s recent movements, and is updated 4 times a day by Movebank.
Project start date: January 2015
Project leaders: Department of Applied Ecology professor, Ted Simons, of the NC Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, and Dr. Roland Kays, research associate professor in the NCSU Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology Program and scientist at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences
