Welcome to the CCB EagleTrak blog! On Wednesday, May 20, 2009, biologists from The Center for Conservation Biology will be placing an ultra-light satellite transmitter on a bald eagle chick from the eagle nest at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. You can view the action in person at the Norfolk Botanical Garden (NBG), or via the NBG eagle nest camera, hosted by WVEC, where you can check-in on the family of bald eagles later. When the eagle chick fledges (learns to fly), CCB (and you!) will be able to track its movements. You can also opt to adopt the transmitter eagle at wildlifetracking.org.
Come back to the EagleTrak blog and EagleTrak Homepage to learn more about those movements from CCB researchers and view the EagleTrak Gallery. You can post your questions about eagles here for CCB to answer.
