BLM’s Benzel to present eagle survey findings

Kathie Benzel will be presenting the findings of the 2017 Midwinter Eagle Survey at the Yellowstone Valley Audubon Society meeting which is open to the public Monday, March 20, at 7 p.m. at Mayflower Congregational Church on the Corner of Rehberg and Poly. Benzel is a wildlife biologist with the Bureau of Land Management, Dillion Field Office and the Montana coordinator for the eagle survey that included YVAS participation.
The Midwinter Eagle survey monitors the status of eagle wintering populations in the contiguous United States by estimating national and regional trends—both overall and by age class.
Each January several hundred individuals count eagles along standard, non-overlapping survey routes. Initial objectives of the survey were to establish an index of the total wintering Bald Eagle population in the lower 48 states. It also sought to determine eagle distribution during a standardized survey period and to identify previously unrecognized important winter habitat. Then beginning in 1984, National Wildlife Federation officials asked participants in each state to count eagles along standard routes to provide data on count trends.
In addition to the 2017 Midwinter Eagle Survey, Benzel will be discussing other important BLM projects and BLM’s interaction with wildlife and wildlife management at the meeting.
