In May 2010 Dr Bryan Watts and Libby Mojica of The Center for Conservation Biology traveled to Ballard Wildlife Management Area in Ballard County, KY and working with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources fitted two juvenile bald eagles with satellite transmitters. Both eagles, a female named Kelly and a male named Turner are doing just fine. Kelly is now in Wisconsin and Turner is in Iowa. You can read about their travels at http://fw.ky.gov/baldeagletrackingnews0711.asp and at http://fw.ky.gov/baldeagletracking.asp

WOW, all the way to Iowa and Wisconsin.They sure are traveling. Thats really neat to know.:)
Yep – it is amazing- those inland guys really travel- AZ & Cammie have everything they want here in the Chesapeake Bay.
Thanks, Reese. Fun to see about other eagles. I only wish I had time to travel as much and see new places!
That was so interesting! They are certainly travelers! And that is a terrific picture! Thanks for sharing this info!
