Challenge Question #4
"What is the greatest distance between two points that each eagle has visited
in the past 3 weeks? (Give your answer in miles and kilometers.)"
Eagle F83 first stopped at a site on the Delaware River. He ended up not
liking his original arrival site and moved upriver about 40 miles. Since Feb
5 he has stayed on the same short stretch of the Delaware River.
Eagle F43 arrived at his wintering site and has taken short trips of 30
miles. His overall range is 20 miles north/south and 40 miles east/west. I
think that he sits most of the time on a favorite tree overlooking the Hudson
River and sometimes he goes looking for food somewhere else tat is still
close to his tree.
Eagle K70 was cought on Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River. She
stayed right on her island until Feb 16th when she traveled east about 40
miles and she hasn't come back yet.
Eagle F81 during the month has moved 120 miles west and 20 miles north. He
is moving from here to there, looking for places to nest and he doesn't seem
to care where he is going.
