Greeting from Eagle Eye Nye
Hi Kids, I’m Pete Nye with the New York Department of Environmental
Conservation. And it’s a great opportunity to say hello to you live
and on video here. We’ve been working with Journey North now with
our bald eagle research since 1995. Many of you are probably new to the
program but we hope that you’re enjoying following our research
as we actually capture and track bald eagles that winter in New York state
to their northern breeding grounds, usually in eastern Canada. It’s
kind of an exciting project. We have about 6 bald eagles online now, I
believe, and we’re hoping to get some good information from them.
of study we’re involved with is trying to determine where these
birds are coming from, if they come back to the same area year after year,
and how important this area is in relation to their overall, year round
ecology; are their breeding areas protected and things like that. So we’re
learning a lot of new information and it’s nice to have you along
with us while we study these birds.
