Bald Eagles - Yesterday and Today
— Jim Watson, Wildlife Research Scientist with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
Learn about the breeding and winter ecology of the bald eagle on Wednesday, February 17, 7 p.m. at the Camano Multipurpose Center, 141 N East Camano Drive (Blue Building). Jim Watson, Wildlife Research Scientist with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the lead researcher for statewide raptor studies, will discuss this iconic raptor in the context of its remarkable population recovery and look at what challenges the species faces in the future. Watson has spent the past 40 years studying raptors in the western United States and abroad. His research focus includes raptor population dynamics, migration ecology, and management of raptors in human landscapes. His recent work evaluates impacts of wind energy and lead contaminants on Golden Eagles and Ferruginous Hawks. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.
