Golden Eagles 1

Trish Miller, a wildlife biologist at West Virginia University and a doctoral student in the Intercollege Graduate Program in Ecology at Penn State, holds a golden eagle prior to fitting it with a telemetry unit that will record the bird's migration route. Miller's research is a key part of an international effort aimed at lessening the risk these rare birds face as they migrate through areas where wind turbines are increasingly common.
