NH Audubon senior biologist Chris Martin sent us this update on the progress of our eagle chicks, along with one other local eagle chick. Our chicks are 79604 and 79606.
Here's an update through January 2011 on the status and movements of three hatch-year bald eagles from the Merrimack River watershed that were equipped with satellite transmitters back in June 2010.
Recall that one of the three juvenile eagles (79604) was killed in early November 2010 at about 6.5 months old, when she was struck by a vehicle while feeding on a road-killed raccoon carcass near Pepacton Reservoir in southeastern New York State. The first map at right shows 79604's travels prior to her death. (Click on the map for the full-size image.)
