Tracking BACA03

Post by JudyB » Tue Feb 12, 2019 12:09 pm

Opening this topic for reports on BACA03's activities.

We don't know much about this eagle yet, except that he or she was tagged in December 2018, probably near the Vancouver Landfill in Delta, BC - the full report will be here when David Hancock has a chance to write it - https://hancockwildlife.org/our-project ... ge/baca03/

Here are a few views of BACA03's travels since s/he was tagged. The first picture is from the interactive map on our website (link in previous post), and the second is from the Animal Tracker app I have on my iPhone.

The place on the left where s/he visits is the landfill; and perhaps there's a nest in the area on the right. I'm not actually from BC, but I'm pretty sure that the eagle's primary activity is in Surrey; White Rock doesn't extend that far inland, and is surrounded on three sides by Surrey.

And this is a closer look at the area where the eagle has been spending most of his/her time.

These three images show the eagle's activity in the last two weeks (an option in Animal Tracker); the first one shows the activity except for one trip to the landfill - so the eagle seems to be concentrating on this area, and finding enough food here that he or she doesn't need to go to the landfill.

This is a closer look at the area where the eagle seems to be most active.

And this is the same map showing what the area is like, rather than the location.
