April 2 - Scott Somershoe - Golden Eagles in Tennessee
The Eastern Golden Eagle Working Group started in the winter of 2011-12 documenting eastern Golden Eagles wintering in the Appalachian Mountains. The information collected since then about the winter range of Golden Eagles is shedding new light on population size, habitat use, and movements, all of which have many important conservation implications. Scott Somershoe, an ornithologist with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency in Nashville since 2006, will bring us up to date on the Golden Eagle research project from the regional and state level perspective with current information on six Golden Eagles that the Group has been tracking. The meeting will start at 7 PM in Room 118 of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Click on the Meetings link for directions.
