RSVP now to join MPG and Raptor View Research Institute for a unique opportunity Friday 1/19 from 11am to 3 pm. Paticipants may observe the live capture of bald and golden eagles, and hopefully get to participate in the banding process (unfortunately mother nature makes to absolute promises, but chances are quite good). This event is based out of a ranch house, so participants can stay warm and out of the elements. We will live-stream video from the capture site to a large screen at the house so visitors can observe the trapping process while remaining at a safe distance. Spotting scopes will be available for an alternate view from the outside deck overlooking the capture site. Researchers will bring the eagles to the house for processing. The day will include an overview of the research to date, including migratory flight data showing the extent of the eagles' range into Alaska. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and put eagle in the subject line to register. We will reply with directions, and pull down this dispatch when the max number of participants is reached.
