Tracking a Golden Eagle

Feb 11, 2010 | Raptor Center

This is a video produced by MN DNR about Whitey, a Golden Eagle released last year after rehab at our Raptor Center.

Golden Eagle 42 was accidentally caught in a leg-hold trap November 6, 2008 in western Wisconsin and suffered leg injuries. After treatment at the University of Minnesota Raptor Center, we banded him and attached a satellite monitored radio (PTT) in order to monitor his migratory movements, determine his summer breeding area, and learn more about how he uses the Mississippi River Valley during the winter.
