Alice the Eagle, Photographed by Alice the Human

IMG_3776c copy - Copy
The female Bald Eagle nesting in Ridgefield Park is named Alice in honor of Alice Leurck, who photographed the eagle and her transmitter three years ago, and again last week (see photo above).

Thanks to Alice's original photo of Alice, we were able to trace her (Alice's the Eagle's) leg bands back to New York State.

A link to the post on the bands, including Alice's original photo of Alice, is here.

(Thanks, Alice, and thanks, Alice!)
