Falcons are tracked
Satellite technology is being used by the Pennsylvania Game Commission to track the dispersal and migration flights of peregrine falcons born and reared earlier this year in Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.
Two young falcons from each city were fitted with satellite transmitter backpacks that transmit to receiving equipment on weather satellites operated by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
When locations are plotted by the satellites, they are transmitted to the Canadian Peregrine Foundation, which forwards information via e-mail to the PGC.
The peregrine locations will be plotted on digital maps and regularly loaded onto the agency's website at
To access the Peregrine Falcon Section, click on "Wildlife," then "Peregrine Falcon." The maps will be updated frequently and will be accompanied by brief reports focusing on falcon movements.
The young falcons are expected to continually expand their travels in coming weeks.
The Game Commission also is utilizing radio-transmitter technology to study bobcats, to track female black bears to monitor reproduction and identify possible females for fostering orphaned cubs back into the wild and to track the movements of Indiana bats, which are on the state and federal endangered species list.
