Title: Nesting bald eagles attack researcher

Author: Grubb, Teryl G.;

Date: 1976

Source: Auk. 93: 842-843.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Because of the large and relatively stable Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) population on Kodiak Island, Alaska, studies on nesting, productivity, and other aspects of the species' life history have been a part of a continuing research program on the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge (Hensel and Troyer 1964, Condor 66: 282; Troyer and Hensel 1965, Auk 82: 636). One of my duties as wildlife aide during the summers of 1967 and 1968 was climbing into eyries, most of them in large cottonwoods, to band 5- to 7-week-old eaglets and to collect food habits data. I wrote the following account from field notes recorded at the time of the incident.

Keywords: nesting bald eagles, Haliaeetus leucocephalus, Kodiak Island, Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge
