Live Eagle Tracking Summary (https://www.hancockwildlife.org/beta-ba ... -alliance/)

It really is amazing to see where they eagles David tagged near Surrey and Delta and White Rock are going - three of them are in coastal Alaska, near Juneau - and another one is north of Alberta in the Yukon Territory! I do love checking the map to see where they are going next! And maybe, Marg, one of these days you'll actually see the one that's hanging out near you!

I wonder if TERF01 has a nest - she seems to be spending a lot of time in a fairly small area.

BACA01 tracking

Hi Sharon & Judy! I was taking a look at BACA01's journey and was going to post some but I'm a little confused where exactly to post. Should there be a separate topic for him or should I just post here? I see that TERF01 & TERF05 are separated.

I think gemini has been adding topics here when someone expresses an interest in one of the eagles. Since BACA01 has become more interesting, being the first of the coastal travelers to chime in after going "off the grid" - I think she'll be happy to add a thread for him.

I'm forever trying to remember which eagles are checking in regularly and which are "off the grid" - so I'm going to put a list of the tagged eagles with the date they last checked in, and approximately from where. Some of the eagles apparently nest (or are looking for nesting locations) in Alaska where the trackers don't always work or in Northern Canada where there aren't many cell towers - and may come back online in the fall when they seem to head South.

Clicking their name will take you to the forum page for that eagle, with more information.

Last Updated October 10, 2019

The date after their name is their most recent post;
if they're posting every day or every couple of days, I'll say "posting frequently as of" rather than keep changing the date

BACA01 - March 28 2019 - tagged Feb 2018 - posted March 28 2019 from the Alaskan panhandle (headed South around Jan 12 2019, ending up in Washington State, and started north again March 1)

BACA02 - March 1 2019 - tagged Feb 2018 - posted March 1 2019 from the Alaskan panhandle (he apparently was in the Richmond area north of Delta during some part of January-February 2019, but there aren't a lot of signals; his tag may be having issues)

BACA03 - posting frequently as of September 29 2019 - tagged ?Nov-Dec 2018? - in his home Surrey/Delta nesting territory as of September 29 2019; (he went back north for a few days after posting September 21 2019 from his nesting area; before that he spent a month out of touch north of Squamish) (previously posted August 19 2019 from Surrey/Delta nesting area - last post was heading north, though not that far from his nesting area) (he's a 6-year-old male who was banded by OWL as a fledgling and 2019 may have been his first nesting season - his full story is coming soon)

TERF01 - September 19 2018 - tagged Feb 2018 - posted September 19 2018 from near Bella Coola (250 mi/400 km north of Vancouver)

TERF02 - October 10 2019 - tagged ?Dec 2018? - previously posted October 6 and September 23 2019 from the same general part of the Alaskan panhandle (off the grid since August 5 post from the same general area) (left Delta area Feb 21)

TERF03 - September 25 2019 - tagged ?Dec 2018? - posted September 25, 19 and 14 2019 from the Alaskan panhandle near Juneau (left Delta area July 3); previous check-in was August 23, a bit further south

TERF04 - June 26 2019 - tagged Feb 2018 - posted June 26 2019 from the Alaskan panhandle (visited Squamish/Chilliwack areas Dec 1 2018 - Mar 10 2019 with quick stop at Delta on the way north)

TERF05 - June 10 2018 - tagged Feb 2018 - appears to have posted July 17 2019 from Great Slave Lake in the southern part of the Northwest Territories but her transmitter has been statistically motionless since approximately June 10 2018 - so either she's dead or (fingers crossed) the tracker came off; someone has been to that location to look for the tracker and didn't find it, so it could be on a tree branch or maybe caught on something in the water; it stopped transmitting during the winter, but started up again in the spring, suggesting to me (JudyB) that the solar panel may have been covered by snow or ice.

TEUS03 - July 24 2019 - tagged ?Dec 2018? - posted July 24 2019 from Bowen Island, a little northwest of Vancouver (he or she had been in the White Rock/Delta/Surrey area before that, so this may have been the beginning of a flight north; the timing was right)

BETA02 - July 30 2019 - tagged March 21 2019 - posted from July 30 2019 from near Whitehorse, Yukon (she was found weak and injured in January 2019 and brought to OWL for rehab, and headed north immediately upon release; she was estimated to be 4.5 years old in January)


More information on the eagles can be found here - https://hancockwildlife.org/beta-bald-e ... -alliance/

More information about BACA03, TERF02, TERF03 and TEUS03 should be posted there soon.
