Back to This Week's Countdown to Migration


What are wild chick #W1-10 and parents up to?

Parents #309 and #403 with their chick #W1-10 have been regularly leaving the refuge and flying up to 14 miles away from their territory to forage in fields. The chick was captured and banded so trackers can learn about her migrations.
