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.

August 16: After five more days of exploring Poquoson neighborhoods, CP93 make a quick trip to Plum Tree Island National Wildlife Refuge this afternoon, before flying south to the Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Virginia. 

August 10: CP93 spent another week exploring the Poquoson area, including the coves and neighborhoods.

August 2: CP93 is still in Poquoson; the bird is exploring the various coves in the area but did not wander over to the Plum Tree Island National Wildlife Refuge this week.
