The last satellite signal from the transmitter that bald eagle Grace is wearing was at 6:43am on October 17 near the mouth of the Poropotank River where it flows into the York River in Gloucester County, VA. A search was made of the area by a biologist from the Center for Conservation Biology and the transmitter was not found. The transmitter has been loosing signal for several weeks and likely has failed. The transmitter was fitted on Grace in Virginia Beach on May 20, 2014, so sent signals for over 3 years which is the average life of these transmitters. Grace is wearing a purple band (MR) on her left leg, so perhaps one day she will be located raising a family at a nest in this region. Click on photo to enlarge.
