Programs: Eagle research projects: cbs has completed the bald eagle pinedale anticline project in wy and is in its third year on two golden eagle studies in mt. The bald eagle is listed as a level 1 priority bird species in wyoming, and it is sensitive to year round disturbance at nest sites and quality foraging areas. For this study we used gps transmitters to better understand bald eagle movements in these areas and to address if energy development had an impact on the behavior of the tracked eagles. Similarly, with increased numbers of proposed wind farms, we are working with the bureau of land management and a master's student to proactively find and understand important use areas for golden eagles in livingston and eastern montana.
wildlife transmitter project: cbs has completed the 3 year wildlife transmitter project. Support from the national science foundation provided 3 years of research and development for the engineering and construction of gps transmitters. Currently in the testing phase, the transmitters are deployed on deer and sage grouse to track movements. The transmitter project completed the nsf award in 2014 and has been transferred to a for-profit organization, trapping inovations. Contact for trapping inov
great gray owl project: very little is known about great gray owl populations in western wyoming. In collaboration with wyoming game and fish dept. (wgfd), bridger teton forest service, grand teton national park and the national elk refuge, cbs will help determine the status, distribution and health of the great gray owl population. With the aid of gps/satellite transmitters, we will develop winter habitat use models and document migration and dispersal from western wy. Results from the project
