Tracking of Golden Eagles Subject for TWRA’s May Nature @ Noontime Program

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 | 05:24am

NASHVILLE --- Scott Somershoe, state ornithologist and a wildlife biologist with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, will present the TWRA’s May Nature @ Noontime program. The topic is “Tracking Golden Eagles” and will be held from noon-1 p.m. on Thursday, May 1 at the TWRA Region II Ray Bell Building.

The research in Tennessee on golden eagles is part of a large project. Through tracking birds with transmitters, biologists are hoping to better understand specific habitat uses, movements, migration, and breeding locations. 

Hosted by the Information and Education Division, Nature @ Noontime is held the first Thursday of each month with the exception of July. TWRA Nature @ Noontime presentations are about natural resources related topics and last about 30-45 minutes, allowing time for discussion during the allotted lunch hour. Contact Don King (615) 781-6502 or by e-mail: don.king@tn.gov for more information.
