For the first time a transmitter was placed on a chick from the Duke Farms eagle nest. This nest cam has been watched by thousands of people over the years and now cam watchers will be able to follow the movements of "Duke" after fledging.
Duke was one of two chicks in the 2019 nest. The nest was visited by biologists on May 25th.
During the visit the chicks were banded, measured and the transmitter attached to Duke. He fledged on June 15th. To keep eagle nests from getting disturbed, nest locations aren’t made public. So no data will appear on the map until Duke leaves the nest area, which could be several weeks.
