Migratory Bird Project Support: Golden Eagle Satellite Telemetry: The USFWS Migratory Bird Office provides occasional funding to eligible recipients to conduct population monitoring and assess the status of high priority bird species of management concern. The purpose of this funding opportunity is specifically to begin to assess age-specific survival rates, dispersal, and sources of mortality of golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in northwestern New Mexico, in order to provide information necessary for refinement of demographic modeling of golden eagles in this region. The models are used to estimate sustainable thresholds of take of golden eagles for determination of impacts of various sources of mortality on eagle populations, and to assist with management decisions regarding issuance of permits for take of golden eagles. Refinements in population modeling will strengthen the Service's scientific basis of its management decisions. This project is a cooperative undertaking involving two Native American tribes (Navajo Nation, Jicarilla Apache Tribe) and the Bureau of Land Management. The objective is to initiate deployment of 6 satellite transmitters (PTTs) on nestling golden eagles in 2010, to monitor movements of those birds over multiple years, survival rates, and determine causes of mortality. Role of the applicant is to arrange access to golden eagle nests, deploy the PTTs on nestling eagles, receive satellite data while fledglings are still within the natal territory, and filter that information to the FWS in a way that will not disclose to the FWS the locations of the eagle nests that are on tribal lands. Applicant may also assist in location/retrieval of PTTs emitting mortality signals. Deployment will occur at Golden Eagle nests on those tribal lands as well as on Federal land located between those two nations. Federal lands between those areas are primarily managed by the Bureau of Land Management. This is a pilot project which, depending on results, may be expanded in future years dependent upon availability of funding.
