Tracking CP93

On November 23, 2016, a mature male Bald Eagle was released at Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry, Virginia. The eagle was rescued in Portsmouth in early October 2016. Read more about the eagle’s history and rehabilitation here. Prior to release, the eagle was fitted with a GPS transmitter.

At the Center, the eagle was known as #16-2217 – the 2,217th patient admitted to the Center in 2016. Now, the eagle will be known as CP93. “CP” represents Chippokes Plantation, where the eagle was released. The numbers are the last two digits on the transmitter that the eagle is wearing. Each transmitter has a five-digit number written on the side of it in permanent black marker so that the eagle could possibly be identified at a distance.

June 21: CP93 spent another week in Hampton flying along the banks of the river, covering a stretch of about five miles. Today, the eagle was hanging out around Salters Creek, near Peterson's Yacht Basin. 

June 14: CP93 appears to be a Hampton Roads bird; the adult eagle spent this past week in Newport News and Hampton. At today's check-in, the bird was about a half-mile from the water, resting in a stand of trees behind a Food Lion.


June 7:  CP93 stayed within the same area of Newport News as he did last week; he's been exploring a small stretch along the James River near Lake Biggins.
