To understand why ... and how ... the eagles, on the Channel Islands off California, have wing tags, we have to go back in time .. to 2002 .. when the Bald Eagles .... of the Northern Channel Islands ... Reintroduction Project started.

The information for this introduction has been taken from the Channel Islands Live! page ... and the FAQ section ... and leads us into the ‘banding’ process when the eaglets are ‘issued’ with their ‘wingblings’

INTRODUCTION.
Bald eagles were historically found on all the Channel Islands and were present on the islands until the mid-1950's - early 1960's. However, due to human pressures and DDT pollution the last known bald eagle nest was seen on the northern Channel Islands in 1949.

In 2002, the Montrose Settlements Restoration Program funded the Institute for Wildlife Studies (IWS) to begin a five-year feasibility study to determine if bald eagles could be successfully restored on the northern Channel Islands given the difficulties experienced breeding farther south on Santa Catalina Island.

Eaglets hatched at the Avian Conservation Center at the San Francisco Zoo, or collected from wild nests in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, were taken to Santa Cruz Island and placed in hacking towers when they were about 8 weeks old. The eaglets were generally ready to fledge at about 12 weeks. The final year for using the towers, called the North Tower and the South Tower, was 2006.

Between 2002 - 2006, a total of 59 bald eagles were hacked/released onto Santa Cruz Island and approximately 35 -40 eagles remained on the Northern Channel Islands. (Anacapa, Santa Cruz , Santa Rosa and San Miguel).


When the eaglets were approximately 11 weeks old weeks they were ‘banded’ by the IWS Team. These wingblings help to ID the eagles .. wherever they go. The IWS monitor the movements of the eaglets through the GPS/VHF transmitter in their back packs. The satellite transmitters record GPS locations of the birds. These are uploaded approx every three days. Traditional VHF telemetry is also used to locate the eagles.

2006 was a Historic Year on Santa Cruz Island.
Not only was it the first year of nesting at the Pelican Harbor nest but the first natural hatching, since 1949, took place on April 12th ... A-49/Cruz.
A-60/Grassland chick also hatched naturally that year too.
Both these eaglets were banded at their nests when they were 8 weeks old.

The wingbling numbers from previous Seasons/Years to the present date, together with some Questions and Answers about the wingblings, are listed below.


This thread is a ‘work in progress’ by Eagle Duo/Jann and Cumbrian/Pat.

The following information about wingblings can be found on the “What are your questions?” Forum.
The dates of the questions/answers are listed in the ( ) below the information.


Colors and codes:
The Bird Banding Lab designates the colors and codes that can be used in different areas.

We are supposed to use light/powder blue wing tags with the letter "A" and a 2-digit number for birds released/produced on the northern Channel Islands. ( e.g. Santa Cruz Island)
Orange wing tags with the letter "K" and a 2-digit number (e.g. K-10) for birds on Catalina Island .

This is supposed to minimize the chances of birds of the same species in the same area getting similar wing markers. Unfortunately, a golden eagle study in the San Diego area also uses orange wing markers (with the letter "C") and juvenile golden and bald eagles are very similar in appearance. The supposed bald eagle that was being seen along the freeway earlier this year turned out to be a juvenile golden eagle from the San Diego area.
(Nov 29/06 & May 30/07)

We are assigned K-00 to K-99 for the wing markers on Catalina and A-00 to A-99 up north.
The eaglets also have leg bands attached at banding .. the leg band numbers aren't assigned, we just report them to the BBL.


What are they made of?
The wing markers are made of a vinyl covered polyester called Shelterite. They are very light and are folded over the front of the wing and attached through the patagium with a small stud usually used for putting eartags on piglets. There are few nerves and blood vessels in the patagium, so the attachment is quick and painless.
(May 30/07)


How Many?
We put tags on both wings, but over time they can degrade and tear, so the birds with one tag (e.g. 01 at WE Nest) likely still have a tab on their wings that is just covered by feathers.
(Feb 3/07)

Wray and Dianna ... WE Nest ... are both from BC and were released together from a hackbox on Catalina Island over 20 years ago.
Dr Sharpe trapped Dianna in 1997 or 1998, and put her wing markers ... 69 ... on then. Neither female had markers when they were originally released.
(Jul 30/07)


Do they bother the birds?
The wing markers are treated like feathers by the birds and we have seen no evidence that they have impacted the birds at all in the 17 years that we have used them. The birds do get leg bands, but those can only be read from about 50 m away with a powerful spotting scope and if the bird is standing just right. Because this is a managed population of bald eagles that would not exist without our help, it is important for us to know who each bird is and to get an idea of where they are taking up residence if they leave the island. The wing markers do eventually break down and fall off the birds.
(May 7/06)


How long do they last
They degrade after 10 years or so.
(Sept 5/06)

*** Northern Channel Islands Update May 14/08:
QUOTE (Jessica. May14 @ 2008,10:12pm)
We did get into the field a few days too. Stephanie saw quite a few sub-adult and adult eagles on the south side and west end of the island. She did see an orange-tagged adult close to the grassland nest area who we presume is K-11 (the dad). There has been an adult blue-tagged eagle hanging out in the area too (A-17). We will keep an eye on these two to see what develops in the future.
QUOTE (Eagle Guy @ May 23 2008, 04:53 PM)
None of our birds with GPS transmitters were in the area, so I doubt we'll ever know who it was. Fortunately it wasn't A-49 (she was at the east end of Santa Cruz) or A-17 (the one we believe was involved in the Grassland nest failure). Even if we did know who it was we would not attempt to relocate it.

QUOTE (IWS Crew - SC Update: August 13 2008 @ 2:05PM)
I was also able to locate a third year BAEA on the north shore of Santa Cruz Island. I took several pictures of him. I could only make out the second number as a four when looking through my binoculars. With the help of looking one particular picture with different lighting we now believe it may be A-54. A third year BAEA that was thought to have died in 2006 over the ocean, after the loss of GPS data sent by the transmitter. We are excited to have possibly located a healthy BAEA that was thought to have been lost. Cedrick Villasenor
