Students Answer Bald Eagle Challenge Question #3
"After reviewing the data for both of our eagles, where was Eagle #N99 on
February 20th? Where do you suspect he is finding food? Do you think he is
migrating yet? Why or why not?"
N99 location: 02/20/97 12:03 h 40.801 N 76.832 W
Not migrating yet. If anything -- we can't tell yet from only three
sightings -- he's moving south (and west a little.) He's probably finding food in the rivers; they eat fish. It's been a warm winter here. There's not much ice covering rivers or ponds in NY or New England.I go to Fayerweather Street School in Cambridge, MA.

The answer to the first part of the question was 25 miles from Harrisburg.
They are gathering food on the Suequehanna river. They are migrating
because it's the migrating season.

Dear Journey North,
To answer your Challenge Question #3, the longtitude and lattitude
is 76.832 degrees west by 40.801 degrees north at 12:03. We coould
not find your location so we used the information you provided us with.
We suspect that he is feeding around Florida. We think he is migrating
because the initial report says that they are around New York.

Ms. Lobb's period 6 class from Hudson Falls Middle School, Hudson Falls, New
York answers: Eagle #N99 was in Manchester, PA. He is finding food in the
Susquehanna River. He is not migrating yet. They are going south instead of
north because of changes in the weather and location of food.
From: NEW YORK
Ms. Lobb's period 5 class from Hudson Falls Middle School, Hudson Falls, New
York answers: The bald eagle is in the town of New Holland, PA by the
Susquehanna River. He is not migrating because the weather was warm last
week and this week the weather cooled down.

Hi Journey North,
Eagle #99 is around Sunbury Pennsylvania on the
Susquehanna River. We think he is finding food in the river. If you tagged
this eagle in NY then he's migrating south? My teacher is confused.

We think the eagle N99 is somewhere in the area of Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania. We think it is beginning to migrate. The bird may be getting
its food from The Delaware River or Delaware Bay.

Eagle N99 is in New York on the border of Canada by Lake Ontario. We think
it gets its food in Lake Ontario. We don't think it is migrating yet. The
latitude longitude number show that the eagle is not moving.

Eagle N99 was at Shomokino I suspect he was eating at river Chemung I dont
think he is migrating yet because he is just going in circles to find
Jessica Luginbill, Alejandra Venegas, Clay Buffo, Dustin Halcomb-Fowler and
#N99 was at 40.801 N latitude and 76.832 w longitude Ottawa, Canada
I think he is feeding of the Trois-Rivi`eres (we have a french map)
I think he is migrating because he has moved into Canada.
