As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Migratory patterns of eastern Golden Eagle population revealed


Date: August 12, 2015

Summary: Eastern North America is home to a small population of Golden Eagles, but despite their potential vulnerability to habitat loss and wind energy development, little information has been available on the patterns of their annual migration. Groups of eagles face different threats depending on the locations they use, and for a new study, researchers have analyzed isotopes in eagles' feathers to trace their annual movements.
