Hilton Head ~ Wintering Golden Eagles in SC at Coastal Discovery Museum
The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Mark Vukovich on January 17 at 3 pm for this program on Golden Eagles. Golden eagles are rare winter residents in eastern North America, with most found along the Appalachian Mountains and few reported on the coastal plain of the Carolinas. The discovery of wintering Golden Eagles on the Savannah River Site help initiate a state-wide effort to better document wintering Golden Eagles using remote cameras baited with carcasses. The results of this three-year state-wide effort will be presented along with the other new developments.
Vukovich has worked for the USDA Forest Service-Southern Research Station at the Savannah River Site for 12 years.
The cost of the program is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
