#AOS19AK Talk by Carol McIntyre: Movement by sexually immature Golden Eagles. Golden eagles don’t hit sexual maturity for a couple years and we need to know where they’re going so we can protect them during this phase.
50% of juvie eagles spend summer on arctic coastal plain. People did not expect this.
Seems like golden eagles follow caribou calving areas on those coastal plains. But they stay even after calving period because there are lots of food resources there. This makes this area a “pre-breeding hotspot”

Waaaay more people in the park than in past due to higher accessibility
Lots of birds do poorly (especially shorebirds) with more pressure from recreation

Hi everyone! Time for another #ORNITHOLODAY!

My name is Brandon Edwards (@bedwards144), and I'll be tweeting to you LIVE from Guelph, ON Canada today. I plan to focus on the role of computer science (I'll call it #CompSci today) in #ornithology.

First, a bit about me!
I'm currently a 4th year BSc student at the University of Guelph (@uofg) in Guelph, ON. I initially started out in the school's Bachelor of Computing: Computer Science program, and actually was in that program for about 3 years before I switched to Mathematics! #ornitholoday
Before university, I had taken a year off after high school. During that time, I picked up the hobby of photographing birds, mainly just ones at bird feeders. It wasn't until I photographed this Red-bellied Woodpecker that I fell in love with birds and #ornithology! #ornitholoday
