Eagle capture

Forest Practices Authority

Eagle research

FPA and UTAS researcher Dr James Pay are investigating if our current management practices do mitigate the impacts of disturbance on wedge-tailed eagles. Transmitters are attached to adult birds to monitor their behaviour in response to forest activities within 1km line-of-sight of their nest during the breeding season. This video shows a wedge-tailed eagle being caught, so it can have a transmitter attached.
