CCB researchers banded and measured the three healthy chicks from the bald eagle nest at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens (NBG) as an Earth Day event, Wednesday April 22nd. In May, CCB will return to the nest to fit the largest eaglet with a satellite-transmitter, enabling researchers and interested citizens to learn about the young eagle’s travels after it fledges from the nest at NBG. CCB will be setting-up the EagleTrak Blog to give the public a research perspective on the NBG eagles’ activities and create a venue for questions and comments to be answered by CCB staff.
