From a joint effort of the Audubon Society and RAPTOR, Kate Heyden, a non-game Avian Biologist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, will be speaking about the eagle tracking project which started in Kentucky in 2010. Kate has satellite-tracked bald and golden eagles from Kentucky to many other states and Canada. Hear what the biologists are learning from the data collected from these transmitters.

Raptor researcher, Jeff Hays of RAPTOR, has assisted Kate with her tracking project in KY for the past 2 years. See photos below of “Carly” being removed from her nest for banding and affixing the transmitter.
