Telemetry: "Jack" Bird 53
Background and Release
Golden Eagle 53 was trapped on November 12, 2012 by Frank Nicoletti at the Hawk Ridge Banding Station in Duluth, Minnesota. The bird was in full adult plumage and based on his small size we believe he is a male. He was released from the Hawk Ridge overlook at around 1500 hrs.
Audubon, Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, and the National Eagle Center decided it was appropriate to name this bird "Jack" after Dr. Jack Hofslund, the founder of Hawk Ridge. Dr. Hofslund passed away in 2012 leaving behind a legacy of raptor study and conservation in Minnesota.
