Rehabilitated golden eagle returns to the USA

New data from golden eagle's summer trip to Canada helps WVU researcher ensure species' safety

Last year our team telemetered a rehabilitated eagle found in upstate NY. Recently the bird returned to New York and sent data showing where it had spent the summer. The story was picked up by several media news outlets, including West Virginia Unviersity's WVU News, the Grafton Patch (MA), and the NSF's "Science 360".

For details on this story and maps of the bird's movements, see this Katzner Lab page.

Bureau of Land Management awards contract for golden eagle research

The California Desert District of the US Bureau of Land Management recently awarded a contract to our research team for study of the impact of renewable energy development on golden eagles in the California Desert. Our team will use newly developed GPS-GSM telemetry systems to track movements of golden eagles and use analysis tools we developed for golden eagle research in eastern North America to the data we collect in the California Desert. Award of this contract represents an exciting opportunity and national validation of the techniques we have developed here at WVU. This work was reported in WVU Today, in Morgantown's Dominion Post, in the West Virginia State Journal and in the Daily Athenaeum.
