Field Notes from Biologist Peter Nye

To: Journey North
From: Peter Nye

"Eagle #F42 has continued to move northeast! Wonder where she's headed. Eagle # F43 is holding tight in New Brunswick--but what's with this #F44 bird ?? She still appears to be hanging out around West Point, with very little movement.

I asked my colleague James Beemer to "run down" this bird via it's tail-radio. I knew it should be easy to get a signal on, then try to get a visual on it to see if it's alive and well.

"'#F44 is giving every indication of sticking around,' he told me a couple of days later. 'The data points center around the Arden Homestead next to Harriman State Park.'

"Is she a local nester or will she still migrate? I am beginning to wonder!!"
