    Challenge Question # 5:
    "If the satellite reading for 3/23/97 is accurate, how far did N98 move from her roost at 44.332 N, 76.016 W? (For extra credit: Were the weather conditions favorable for eagle migration on March 22 and/or March 23rd? Describe your answer.)"

    • From left to right, these weather maps show conditions on March 21, March 22 and March 23, 1997.
