A golden opportunity at Camp Ripley is giving more information about eagles and migration.

Minnesota National Guard says an environmental team caught a golden eagle last Thursday, being the second in three years. Researchers say they didn’t think golden eagles stayed in Minnesota during the winter. Volunteer wildlife technician Nate Wesenberg trapped the eagle ‘Victor,’ after monitoring it for 30 hours in -22 degree weather.

Victor has been fitted with a GPS tracker and was released last Friday. Researchers at Camp Ripley continue to learn more about the different species habitats, breeding and migration habits of animals in central Minnesota.
