Next message: Pam Boyle: "Challenge Question #12"
You gave the guess for Eagle K58 because she's leaving early which tells you
that she won't be going too far up north. Her quick trip tells you she's
nested before and knows where she's going.
You gave the guess for Eagle F83 because he left late which tells you that
he's going far up north. He's unmated he took a long time getting north and
he wanders around.
You gave the guess for Eagle F81 because he flying in same direction that he
did last year so you think that he will go to the same place. He is a mated
bird and know his route so he'll fly fast and he left later so he'll go
You gave your guess for Eagle F43 because you've been tracking her for 2
years and she's always gone to the same place so you think she's going to the
same place once again.
You gave your guess for Eagle K70 because you think that she's young and
probably unmated and perhaps her late departure means she's going far up
You gave your guess for Eagle K72 because she is already heading northwest
and the only other bird that you tracked northwest went to Ontario.
