EASTERN Bald Eagle Migration Update: April 13, 1998
This unscheduled update brings exciting news from Peter Nye:
Then, sometime between the morning of April 4th and 5:50 pm on the 7th, #F44 traveled some 250 miles northward, all the way to New Hampshire's Connecticut River.
Let's look at the weather on the 4th - 7th. Which days might have been the best for traveling? And why she didn't move much further north between Tuesday, April 7th and Saturday, April 11th? (The data below for 4/12/98 is at 2 in the morning, so don't know yet whether she moved on Sunday.)
What's most exciting is this: Eagles that leave late are expected to go a long, long way north. One year, just as Nye was about to give up, one "New York" eagle traveled all the way to Labrador! This year, all during the month of March, Eagle #F44 waited--even through New York's 70 degree weather. It makes you think, maybe she knew spring hadn't reached her nest site yet.
Let's see what happens next week!
