WESTERN Bald Eagle Migration Update: April 13, 1998

Latest Travels of Western Eagles
Click to see full map.

"Eagle #05 has left southeast Alaska--and is halfway back to her territory across northern British Columbia," Jim Watson reported last evening. And as you'll see below, Eagle #13 has finally taken off--at last! (Watson will hear from Eagle #12 mid-week, and we'll know whether she's left Washington as well.)

Latest Satellite Migration Data

For 2 of our eagles, LAST YEAR'S migration data is also included. Consider these questions in the light of the latest data.

  • To date, how have the timing and route of Eagle #05's migration compared each year?
  • How have the timing and route of Eagle #16's trips from year to year compared?
  • How many miles did #13 fly between April 2 and April 8? Because he left so much later than the other 2 birds, do you think he'll travel further north? (See discussion in today's report for Eastern Eagles.)
  • And of course, Challenge Question #10
