Bald Eagle Studies


On going study examining bald eagle behavior and eagle-aircraft strike hazard in the Chesapeake Bay Region of Virginia in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries

Midwestern North America

The purpose of this project is to understand how external factors, such as weather and landscape characteristics, influence Bald Eagle movements in the region.


The goal of this research was to acquire information that would give wildlife managers and energy developers the ability to make sound and scientifically based decisions to address potential conflict between Bald Eagles and wind turbines.


The purpose of this project is to understand movements by young Bald Eagles to better inform siting of wind energy in Kansas. Interactions between eagles and wind energy development are a concern for eagle conservation and wind energy operations and regulatory compliance.
