Golden eagles studied

Since January 1994, 177 golden eagles have been tagged and monitored through radio signals in a study of the effect of wind turbines on the birds in Altamont Pass co-funded by the Department of Energy (DOE).

Hunt is an ecologist with the Predatory Bird Research Group of the University of California-Santa Cruz. A new report will be released by DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory later this year, he said.
