Harpy Eagle Research (57) More files... by Pete Oxford and Renee Bish
Pete and Renee travelled to Ecuador's Amazon rainforest and several days they worked with researchers to track and trap an endangered Harpy Eagle chick in its Kapok tree nest. After lowering the animal to the ground they attached a GPS-aided satellite tracking transmitter to the bird to record its movements - the first time a harpy has ever been tagged with such a device. After careful data collection and gentle handling the bird is returned to its nest.This story reflects an intimate relationship between researchers who have dedicated years of their lives to a quest to understand the Harpy and its needs, and the Harpy itself.Text by Pete Oxford.
