This bald eagle is a winter visitor to the Chesapeake Bay. It was banded as a nestling by the NY Department of Environmental Conservation in 2007. In November, this eagle flies to the Bay to hunt wintering waterfowl along the many tributaries of the Bay. We captured this eagle using a rocket net baited with a road killed deer. After fitting the eagle with a solar powered GPS transmitter, we released it on the shoreline of the Bay.
