Eagle Bander

Clip: Season 2 Episode 5 | 6m 24s

Mike Meyer is a state Department of Natural Resources researcher who works with bald eagles. Each year, in early summer, his job is to band the state’s newest eaglets. With the help of a tree climber, the eaglets are brought to the ground, examined, tested, banded and returned to their nest. Mike’s work ensures Wisconsin has a healthy eagle population.
