The Capture of Eagle #F83
By Peter Nye

February 15, 1999
Our third eagle of 1999, by 1:30 pm F83 was winging his way freely down the river-valley once again, but now, sending out data for you to read and plot from his satellite radio transmitter, PTT #2192. F83 now joins our other two eagles captured this year, all from distinctly different wintering ranges in New York. Although unbanded, we can still just assume that F83 is a winter-visitor from Canada; it is also possible he is a more local
breeder who may not migrate this spring, a possibility with all our
winter birds.
