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

  title={Survival Probability and Mortality of Migratory Juvenile Golden Eagles from Interior Alaska},
  author={Carol L. McIntyre and Michael W. Collopy and Mark S. Lindberg},
Abstract The conservation of golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) requires a thorough understanding of their demographic parameters. Productivity, commonly measured as the number of nestlings or fledglings per pair, is the parameter reported by most studies of nesting golden eagles and is often used as a measure of their population status. Survival may be an equally or more important parameter to measure; however, survival rates of golden eagles are not well documented. We used satellite telemetry… 

Survival Estimates and Cause of Mortality of Golden Eagles in South-Central Montana

The survival probability estimates from the Golden Eagles the authors monitored were higher than reported estimates from other locations, and can assist with the development of population matrices and increase the knowledge on causes of Golden Eagle mortality.

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

The First Case of Successful Breeding of a Golden Eagle Aquila chrysaetos Tracked from Birth by Satellite Telemetry

Abstract. The natal dispersal of a Golden Eagle from its natal eyrie to the site where it reproduced for the first time was monitored. After covering > 16 000 km2 in its three years of juvenile

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

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

Daytime Habitat Selection by Resident Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in Southern Idaho, U.S.A

Abstract Energy and other anthropogenic development are increasing throughout the range of Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in western North America, and both private and government agencies have

Population ecology of golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) using remote cameras

Pictures from installed camera traps around eagle nests in six counties in Sweden are analyzed to establish demographic parameters for the Swedish golden eagle population and estimate productivity, chick survival, fledging age and timing.

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

Clearcutting and the breeding productivity of golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in Västerbotten County

The golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) is red-listed as near threatened in Sweden, but there are many basic ecological and demographical parameters important for successful management and conservation

High juvenile mortality during migration in a declining population of a long-distance migratory raptor

Many populations of long-distance migrants are declining and there is increasing evidence that declines may be caused by factors operating outside the breeding season. Among the four vulture species

Studying the demographic drivers of an increasing Imperial Eagle population to inform conservation management

Assessing whether conservation management actions are effective requires a good understanding of the demographic parameters that contribute to the population growth rate. Among the key demographic



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

Bald eagle survival and population dynamics in Alaska after the Exxon Valdez oil spill

It is concluded that any effect of the spill on survival occurred before eagles were radiotagged and that the PWS bald eagle population has an annual finite growth rate of 2%.

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 Rates and Population Dynamics of Bald Eagles on Chesapeake Bay

Because eagle habitat is being converted to human developments at a rapid rate on the Chesapeake, models incorporating these habitat losses are needed to accurately predict future population trends.

First-year survival of great horned owls during a peak and decline of the snowshoe hare cycle

It is proposed that extended parental care makes the postfledging stage safe during optimal conditions, but that the relatively slow development during this stage incurs the cost of increased susceptibility to disease and other mortality factors under environmental stress.

Encounters of Golden Eagles banded in the Rocky Mountain West

Abstract Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) were banded as nestlings, migrants, wintering birds, and resident breeders in three states of the U.S. Rocky Mountain West between June 1973 and January

Golden eagles in the U.S. and Canada: Status, trends, and conservation challenges

--We reviewed the literature to assess tatus and population trends and to identify mortality factors affecting Golden Eagle populations in the U.S. and Canada. Nesting populations in Alaska and

Parental Care and Feeding Ecology of Golden Eagle Nestlings

The division of labor between the sexes of Golden Eagles during breeding is quantified and these activities to the food consumption of nestlings are related to theories of sexual size dimorphism and parental investment.

Pre-breeding survival of barnacle geese Branta leucopsis in relation to fledgling characteristics.

It is hypothesized that lightweight birds are more vulnerable to, for example, diseases, parasites and predation during the first months of their life, once they have survived this critical period of fledging, and the effects of characters related to low body weight at capture seem to disappear.

Mortality, morbidity, and lead poisoning of eagles in western Canada, 1986-98

This work studied the copulation behavior of the Black-winged Kite, that, unlike raptors previously studied, may raise two broods consecutively in the same breeding season, and observed three seasonal peaks in copulation frequency.
