Say"Hello" and "Good-bye" to Eagle U27!
This adult eagle was captured while feeding along New York's Delaware River. Eagleye Nye and his team sat for hours before they lured her in with some tasty food: a dead animal carcass. They caught her under a big net while she was busy feeding. She was "gently captured" because she wasn't hurt at all. They weighed and measured her. They took a small blood sample. Then they put a "U27" ID band and a back-pack satellite radio unit on the eagle.
