Movements of Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) from Interior Alaska During Their First Year of Independence

  title={Movements of Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) from Interior Alaska During Their First Year of Independence},
  author={Carol L. McIntyre and David C. Douglas and Michael W. Collopy},
Abstract We used satellite telemetry to study year-round movements of two cohorts of juvenile Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) from Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska. Radiotagged Golden Eagles started autumn migration between 15 September and 5 October and arrived on their winter areas 31 to 86 days later. Cumulative tracking distances during autumn migration ranged from 818 to 4,815 km. Peak tracking velocities during autumn migration reached 261 km day−1 in 1997 and 472 km day−1 in… 

Observations of Migrating Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in Eastern Interior Alaska Offer Insights On Population Size and Migration Monitoring

Abstract Migratory Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) from Alaska winter across a vast region of western North America, much of which is undergoing rapid change from a diversity of indirect and direct

Dispersal and Survival of Juvenile Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) from Finnmark, Northern Norway

Abstract The Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) in Fennoscandia has a widespread breeding range. In Norway, it spans from 58° in the south to 71° north in Finnmark County, making it likely the

Habitat use and ranging behaviour of GPS tracked juvenile golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos)

Throughout its wide distribution in the northern hemisphere, the golden eagle occurs in a diverse range of environments, e.g., mountainous, forest and open areas. The literature on juvenile golden

First Satellite Telemetry Study of Movement Behavior of Juvenile Golden Eagles from Mexico

Abstract. The southern limit of the Golden Eagle's (Aquila chrysaetos) breeding range in North America is Mexico, where the eagle is the national symbol yet designated as a threatened, high priority

Quantifying Sources of Mortality and Wintering Ranges of Golden Eagles from Interior Alaska Using Banding and Satellite Tracking

Abstract Documenting the year-round movements and factors affecting the survival of wide-ranging birds is essential for developing effective conservation strategies. This is especially true for

First-Year Dispersal of Golden Eagles from Natal Areas in the Southwestern United States and Implications for Second-year Settling

Abstract Knowledge of dispersal from natal areas by pre-breeding-age Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in North America is sparse, though crucial for conservation planning. During 2010–2015, we used

Movements of Juvenile Gyrfalcons from Western and Interior Alaska Following Departure from Their Natal Areas

Abstract Juvenile raptors often travel thousands of kilometers from the time they leave their natal areas to the time they enter a breeding population. Documenting movements and identifying areas

Migration corridors of adult Golden Eagles originating in northwestern North America

Identification of high-use movement corridors and bottlenecks for the migratory portion of the eagle population in western North America is an important first step to help habitat conservation and management efforts to reduce the risk of eagle mortality.

Migration Patterns, use of Stopover Areas, and Austral Summer Movements of Swainson's Hawks

Conservation of Swainson's Hawks must be an international effort that considers habitats used during nesting and non-nesting seasons, including migration stopovers, using satellite telemetry to characterize migration, important stopover areas, and movements in the austral summer.

Autumn Migration of Mississippi Flyway Mallards as Determined by Satellite Telemetry

Abstract We used satellite telemetry to study autumn migration timing, routes, stopover duration, and final destinations of mallards Anas platyrhynchos captured the previous spring in Arkansas from



Complete migration cycle of golden eagles breeding in northern Quebec

Radio tracking via satellite was initiated to study the year-round movements of Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos canadensis) breeding on the east coast of Hudson Bay, Quebec. In June and August 1992,

Satellite tracking of Swedish Ospreys Pandion haliaetus: autumn migration routes and orientation

There was no correlation between angular deviation and length of the migrational segment, indicating that the principles of orientation by vector summation may not be valid for Osprey migration.

Reproductive characteristics of migratory golden eagles in Denali National Park, Alaska

We describe reproductive characteristics of Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) breeding in Denali National Park, Alaska during an entire snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus) cycle, 1988-1997. Data on

Movements and survival of bald eagles banded in the greater yellowstone ecosystem

Movements and survival of immature bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) beyond their first winter remain largely unknown, and lack of information may impede strategies for effective conservation.

Survival Probability and Mortality of Migratory Juvenile Golden Eagles from Interior Alaska

The results indicate that low first-year survival may limit recruitment of golden eagle recruitment and it is recommended that golden eagle monitoring programs include survival estimates.


Abstract From 1999–2003, we tracked movements of adult female Prairie Falcons (Falco mexicanus) using satellite telemetry to characterize long-range movement patterns and breeding dispersal. We radio


Abstract The postfledging dependence period is not well documented for many species of raptors, including Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos). From 1997 to 1999, we used satellite telemetry to estimate

Migration routes and differences of migration schedule between adult and young Steller's Sea Eagles Haliaeetus pelagicus
